Let’s go Modelling!

On Monday, 19th March Maria attended an ICON Textile Group Course entitled “Fosshape™ Workshop”.  An exciting opportunity to learn more about a material which is used widely in theatre props and millinery!  We use it to create made-to-measure mounts for historic costumes.


Fosshape™ is a non-woven, felt like fabric, containing low melt synthetic polyester fibres that shrink and harden when heat activated.  An inert, light-weight fabric which is easy to cut and sew, has a quick drying time and is a great alternative to buckram.

… and here’s one Maria made earlier …

… you should have seen her carrying it home on the train!!

Thank you to ICON and the course leaders for a very informative, hands-on experience.
