Description:

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)!

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).

Whether someone wanted to make a beret, a beanie or a bonnet, Chris helped us all to make our wishes come true. Highly recommended.

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’!

Well what a beautiful day with Christine, course hat making was easy to follow and with an outstanding result in my beautiful hat. Would highly recommend anyone to go along and try this wet felt making. Lovely lunch provided was amazing. Thank you so much for a stress less and relaxing day. Xxx

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!

A great day where I made the hat I really wanted - each time I go I learn so much more in great surroundings, a friendly atmosphere with expert tuition and guidance from Chris.

Wonderful fun with Christine, excellent teacher, and great product (hat) to take home at the end of the day. I'm now addicted!
