Spiked Hat Class

Spiked Hat Class

Last month I taught the spiked hat class at the Ottawa Valley Weavers’ and Spinners’ Guild. I had 6 wonderful students. Some did hats with brims and some did hats with folded up bottoms. As usual I did not take as many pictures as I should.

Notice how she is putting dots on the inside of the hat so they will show later on the outside.


And lastly the finished hats. one person did not get the spiral for the spike to warp around in finished in class. I offered to stay but she said she would do it at home. I would like to see a finished picture of it. the paten around it was quite nice.

Everyone liked making their spikes and learning how to attach them and then shaping in the swirl for it to lay in.  The spick does need to be tacked in place so it stays put or when you bend over it falls out. All in all a good class.

  1. Lovely hats Ann, I bet the ladies were really happy with them. It’s wonderful how they came up with different effects.

  2. A great variety of hats. They are all lovely and unique. It’s always fun to see how differently people create.

  3. It looks like a lot of photos to me Ann! I know how it is in a class, you start out taking photos and then all of a sudden the class if finished and you realize you haven’t taken any. The hats look great and they look they are having a great time.

    1. I always go in with the best intentions of taking pictures of everyone at each major step but somewhere along the way I forget about the camera. Of course they are having fun, it’s felting. LOL

  4. They all look great, and good thinking by the woman who put the dots on the inside, that’s the kind of thing I never think of until after 🙂 I always forget photos too!

  5. Wow, what great results. I haven’t made a hat yet but am dying to. Haven’t found any workshops in my area yet. Any suggestions? Also, where do you find forms to wrk the hats on? Thanks so much.

    1. Hi Sherry, thanks. Where are you located? maybe asking over on the Forum would be a good idea. There are people form all over on the forum.

We'd love to hear your thoughts!
