This is the ideal course to re-invent, re-new, and re-trim an old summer or winter hat, which could be sinamay, straw or felt and upcycle it into something really special.
On this course:
• You need to bring along one or more old hats which can be made of sinamay, straw or felt. Charity shops are a great source of hats if you don’t have any old hats.
• You will have the option to re shape your hat either subtlety bring the shape up to date or totally re block the shape.
• You will learn how to make suitable summer trims from the excess of your material or from our sinamay, felt and feathers in order to add loops, lilies, roses, feathers or bows.
• Work with a variety of fabrics and feathers to make your design bespoke and go away with the skills to re-invent more hats.
