Announcement   Beat the waiting list! Come and make your own. We are running a two day intensive felted hat making course in the heart of Glastonbury town, Somerset, UK, at The Avalon Centre.

Some knowledge of felt making is advised as this is a masterclass in creating a hand felted wool hat, a physically demanding yet highly rewarding process.

Working with hand dyed wools including merino, blue faced leicester and teeswater fleece curls, you will learn about template design, shading colours, felting in curls, hand fulling, and professional finishing techniques.

You will have the opportunity to create either a trilby style hat or a short topper. The finished hat is of course yours to keep forever or give as a gift!

Each student may choose up to 3 colours of our hand dyed wools pre-prepared into drum carded batts, and a selection of other colours will also be available to play with on the day, plus heaps of colourful fleece curls and firestar sparkle! Handmade wooden button is included or you can bring your own.

Price per head £245, includes materials, tea and coffee.

DATES AVAILABLE

4th & 5th March
1st & 2nd April
29th & 30th April

🌟 Places are strictly limited to 5 per class 🌟

BEST HAT EVER! was so thrilled to receive this just in time for Christmas day a (which is also my birthday) and waited and left it in its box until the day itself and AM SO HAPPY to own such a wonderful rainbow colourful magic hat! It is beautifully made and my cousins spent christmas trying to steal it off my head. The colours and craftmanship are excellent and it is a great pleasure to wear it. Innerspiral is a fantastic brand and also consists of a really lovely person (Zara). Too excited for my new adventures with this hat!!! yes!!!! :)

Hat felting in progress. Still a fair amount of sculpting, shaping & shrinking that will occur before it reaches its finished size and fully felted structure. The biggest hat we make! star2
Crocheting a custom cowl scarf with handspun, hand dyed wool, single ply yarn two_hearts the crochet is the quick bit! The yarn is the result of several weeks of dying, blending and spinning. This is pure luxury, merino wool for ultimate softness and cosy comfort
Laying out the wool for my biggest, most marvellous hand felted top hat. All the colours have been dyed by hand and then blended individually on a drumcarder... This is the beginning of the actual hat, the result of many weeks of preparation work.

Sometimes my work is available ready made, pieces where I have followed my muse in creation, these are marked READY to SHIP. I have a large catalogue of work marked MADE to ORDER. All of these pieces are custom made individually. Waiting time is normally between 5 - 8 weeks, however at certain times of year my waiting list grows as there is only one pair of hands here people!

My work is available to buy off the shelf in two shops:

Golden Turtle Trading Centre, Illinois - features a number of other Etsy artisans working in natural fibers as well as a wide range of our work - www.thegoldenturtletradingcenter.com.

Milliners Guild - features a number of up and coming milliners and a range of our hats in both art yarn and felted wools are available to buy there directly - www.millinersguild.com
