Dieder Laforest

Crafts are dying, secretly and silently, disappearing and yet if they can be clutched and revived before this there is great good that can be achieved and great lives lived by crafts people saving and developing culture and heritage.
Dieder Laforest’s passion for hat block making and faith in the hat making industry (despite its demise in France) lead him to open the workshop at Lyon’s Hat Museum.Here Dieder Laforest sculpts wood into different shapes to create hat blocks according to each milliner’s specific needs.
