About the Course
Would you like to make the most wonderful hat? Come and join us on a two day intensive, making a felted wool hat from scratch, at the Yeast Scrapstore in Glastonbury.
Some basic knowledge of felt making is advised as this is a masterclass in creating a hand felted wool hat, a physically demanding yet highly rewarding process.
Working with hand dyed merino wool and teeswater fleece curls, you will learn about template design, laying out colours, felting in curls, hand fulling, and professional finishing techniques.
You will have the opportunity to create either a trilby style hat or a short topper, designs original to Innerspiral. The finished hat is of course yours to keep forever or give as a gift!
Each student may choose up to 3 colours of our hand dyed wools pre-prepared into drum carded batts, and a selection of other colours will also be available to play with on the day, plus heaps of colourful fleece curls and firestar sparkle! Handmade wooden button is included or you can bring your own, and you will finish the hat off with a piece of handspun art yarn.
You can expect 12 hours of workshop, 6 hours per day. You will need to wear loose light clothing, and have short sleeves. Please bring an apron as you will get wet!
Price per head £220 / Concessions £180
