During this day workshop you will create your very own unique seamless felt hat from pure wool. Choose to make an elegant style or a quirky unusual design. Felt making techniques enable you to make a hat without any seams or stitching in a multitude of colour options and styles. During this day you will learn:

– How to make a Hat
– How to lay out your wool to obtain a smooth surface to your felt
– How to create folds, pleats and points
– How to add surface decoration

What to expect

Time at ArtisOn is designed to take you away from it all and provide the environment, the time and the guidance you need to create. You can expect a warm welcome, skilled and friendly tutors plus the chance to meet like-minded people keen to share ideas and experiences. You can even leave us to clear up the mess! There will usually be two workshops going on and we encourage everyone to mingle and be nosey about what the other workshop is up to.

Arrive in time to meet other participants over a cup of tea or coffee and biscuits before beginning your session at the appointed time. There will be a mid-morning break for refreshments and a chance to talk over progress with others. Lunch is usually around 12:45 for about 45 mins – you can expect a homemade 2 course lunch. The main course will be delicious but don’t overdo it as the puds are usually worth waiting for! There will be a further afternoon break with the most wonderful cakes from Roots & Fruits Home Bakery, a North Yorkshire micro-bakery producing handmade bread and cakes. All food and refreshments are included in the price of the workshop.

Finish time is given as a target – there are occasions when the session may overrun so do let us know if you need to be away promptly.

We aim for your day to be a real treat… of course you could always learn a new skill in a shed or a draughty village hall with a curly sandwich, but we want you to have more fun than that! So we make it a day being looked after, with good food, good company and great inspiration!

What you’ll need to bring with you

Some equipment is provided but please bring the following with you:

Two towels
Sharp scissors
Plastic carrier bag
A bamboo rolling mat

Also, if you do happen to have your own hat block at home, please bring it with you as it will reduce the need for sharing.
