Straw Hat Plaiting and Making
SATURDAY 12 JUNE, 11-4PM
This workshop will teach you all about the history of British straw hat making, and some of the techniques involved in the endangered craft of hand plaiting and braiding. You will learn several traditional styles used for straw hat making using British wheat over the centuries, now almost completely abandoned in the UK.
Learn the skills needed to create your own hat designs and build a summer visor, brimmed bonnet or cap.
Light refreshments are included in the ticket price.
