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 up-cycle it into something really special. You need to bring along one or two older 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 reshape your hat either subtly bringing the shape up to date or totally re-blocking 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.

What's included in the price?

All materials and tools needed are included in the cost, also light refreshments. Afternoon tea can be added for £9 and a selection of extra materials and feathers are also on offer if required.
