About the Course

Learn to make your own beautiful felt hat!

On this course, you will be shown how to design your own hat, working from a basic template,which you can then personalise by adding flaps, flowers, tassels, bobbles or any other decoration you can think of !

I have been making, and teaching felt making for many years now, and have developed this range of courses to cover basic felt-making techniques, to produce a finished item during the day, and to encourage further experimentation (and of course have lots of fun)!

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

All materials and home baked snacks and lunch including soup or salads made from our home grown organic vegetables (in season).

I would just like to say what a wonderful day I had with Christine , making a felt hat.
Four of us students altogether, with three of us makng hats, and the other one making a nuno scarf.
All so fascinating, with lots of banter between us, and such a fab lunch made by Christine’s hubby, not forgetting Christine’s homemade ‘FlatJacks’!

I attended a felt hat making course and enjoyed every part of it. The start with great coffee. Christine warmly explains every step and diplomatically explains should you make a mistake! Not that I did!! Flapjacks for mid morning and a fabulous homemade, with homegrown ingredients, lunch just topped off the experience with lovely people. All that and a hat!
