This is your chance to explore plant fibres in the context of hat making. Materials made from plant fibres have been used to make hats for thousands of years and the techniques used to create beautiful shapes are some of the simplest to learn. Create fashionable or vintage hat styles as you are introduced to professional hat making from straw and sinamay. This course will enable you to produce your own stunning creations for both men and women, trimmed to perfection. If you have existing skills, you will be encouraged to research and develop your design skills alongside your technical abilities. All students will be encouraged to pursue their own project work where appropriate.
