Sharing Hatting Success – Part 2

So following on from my post earlier this week, I wanted to mention the first ‘Hat Share’ hosted by Hat Works Museum of Hatting that took place last Saturday. This was a celebration of the achievements of all the people who have undertaken a millinery course at the museum in the last year. It was a great way to finish off the ‘school’ year and say thanks to our tutors Lorna Young, Marie Thornton and Sue Carter who have given so much of their creative energy to the programme since it began 2 years ago.

Over 90 people have undertaken a  course at the museum in that time – myself included. They offer a mixture of evening classes and weekend courses as well as Open Blocking where you can use the hat blocks and work room for the day. You can read a great write of of the Open Blocking sessions here by Sohpie of Imogen’s Imagination. The event also launched the new programme starting in September which has been inspired by style icons.

Everyone was invited to bring along a selection of hats they have made using their new found skills and an impromptu exhibition was created. It was fantastic to see how everyone is developing their own style and experimenting with the techniques they have learned at the museum.

It was great talking hats over a glass of fizz! Hopefully this will be an annual event!
