Step Inside the Big Wigs Workshop

Updated: Jul 23, 2019

Welcome to the Big Wigs Workshop!

Whether you’re just stepping into the wonderful world of wig making or fueling your passion for creating wigs, we are delighted to share this amazing art form with you.

From display wigs and drag wigs to wigs designed for the theatre, Big Wigs Workshop offer courses on making hard cap wigs for any occasion.

While soft cap wigs are the most widely-taught technique of wig making, hard cap wigs are at the centre of every Big Wigs Workshop.

Why have we designed our courses around hard cap wigs, you ask?

Because this style of wig making not only produces beautifully bespoke pieces, but also opens up the door to many lucrative business opportunities (more on that here).


Our hands-on courses are all about YOU.

Are you interested to learn how to make hard cap wigs or simply want to improve your wig making skills? Then the Big Wigs Workshop is for you.

Or maybe you’re looking to start a business out of wig making and would like help creating a business plan and navigating your way through this niche market: everything from reading a brief, finding suppliers, pricing your wigs and delivering your handmade pieces.

You decide what the focus will be, and we will tailor the workshop to fit your needs. So you get the most out of the course as possible and come away with all the tools you need to succeed (our #1 goal!).


Led by seasoned wig specialist Lauren Hobbs, our workshops give you a structured space to create wigs and acquire the know-how to turn wig making into a trade.

Whether the workshop is two days (the beginner course) or two weeks (the intermediate program) you will gain professional insight from Lauren’s extensive experience in the field.

That means 24/7 support from the Big Wigs Workshop before and after the course to help you develop your skills, business idea or both.

Whichever wig making journey you are ready to embark on, we’re here every step of the way.

Think of it as a jumping-off point for your creativity or future business. A skill that feeds your imagination and forms the basis of a sought-after trade.


Wig making, especially hard cap wig making, is an art form full of tips and tricks that not a lot of people know about. That’s why we’re inviting everyone from London to L.A. into our workshop!

Because we believe nothing is more rewarding than carrying out your creative passion. And what’s more? The ability to build upon and pass your craft onto others.

So if you’re ready to grab life, or should we say the hard cap by the hands, the Big Wigs Workshop is the place to be!

You can find more details on our beginner and intermediate courses here or book a workshop with Lauren at

All we need to put on the perfect workshop is your budget, time preference and wig making wishes. Leave the rest to us.

The road to sky-high wigs starts here!
