Merino & Silk Hat…..

This is a hat I made last weekend in Ipswich where I attended a wonderful wet felting workshop with international feltmaker Annemie Koenen.  Annemie had come over to the UK from her home in the Netherlands to deliver a three-day workshop for Region 7 of the IFA and I wasn’t going to miss it as it’s always a real pleasure to work with her.

The wool I used was a beautiful Merino and silk blend which Annemie dyes in her studio.  This is only my third hat and it’s been fascinating making them as each one has involved a different technique, learnt from different tutors.  This design is by far the most flamboyant and I’m looking forward to showing it at the Big Textile Show at the end of the month.
