I taught a wet felted hat class last week end. I ended up with four students. One unfortunately had to drop out at the last min.
I let students pick the style of hat they want to make. Two students licked a pixy style to keep warm while having fun outside.
A hat with no brim and folds and one that will be a fedora style.
Everyone one want some like on their hats. Two chose to use silk caps to cover the whole hat. The blue hat has silk that had lots of contrast but as it gets wet is seems to disappear.
One person wanted flowers under the silk cap. They are made by twisting a silk hanky.
The fedora will have wisps of silk top.
And then we got busy felting and talking and I forgot to take pictures, sorry. I almost forgot to get a picture of them all done. The green one will continue to be worked on. She isn’t sure how she is going to treat he brim. Probably she will roll it to get it to the depth she wants. The fedora will get its brim trimmed and shaped as well.
Hear is the other pixy hat. You can really see the silk now.
