Hat block

Hat block 3D print model


A hat block, also known as a hat form or bashing block, is a wooden block carved into the shape of a hat by a craftsman known as a block shaper. It is used by hat makers or milliners as well as costume makers or hobbyists[1] to produce a hat. Today there are only a handful of block shapers left. Recent years have seen a resurgence of hat wearing, and with it a corresponding need for new hatblocks as students of millinery hone their skills.

Vintage hat blocks are considered collectible by enthusiasts. An advantage of the wooden hat block is that it can be re-carved into a new shape or modified unlike aluminium or poly blocks.
