My Felt in the Guild Exhibition

My  guild exhibition opened on Wednesday. we had a vernissage  Thursday evening.

guild show

I can now show you the hat I have been working on for ages. First I had to make a prototype, modeled her by my son. It was how to make, attach and manage the horns that I needed to work out.

Very Monty Python to me.

The finished hat looks like this

I will do a post about making it in the near future.

I also have some pictures in the exhibition.

I think they look great hanging. You can get an idea of how big the Cityscape is in the hat picture, it is in the back ground .

Here are some of the other things in the exhibition.

    Your son was born to wear that hat! I love the second pose. The horns are fab as is the finished hat. Stunning piece of work!
    Your pictures do look good in their frames – you must be very proud.

    Congratulations Ann! It looks like a wonderful exhibition. The hat is wonderful and your son is really cute too 🙂 I would love to see the finished hat on your son as well as the photo doesn’t seem to do it justice. Looking forward to the “hat making” post.

    • Thanks Ruth, I am going to try and get a better picture of it. I think it needs some light in front of it. The overhead lights create shadows that do to photograph well.
