Felt Hats workshop

Another month, another workshop: This time it was hat making with a small but determined bunch of students.

Over two days, they learned to measure and prepare a resist to felt around, how to lay out fibres evenly, how to achieve a seamless, strong finish and ways to set the final shape.

Hard to believe, but some of these hats were made by complete beginners!
