Course Overview

Weave a completely distinctive and striking chapeau using willow bark. Together, we will design a wearable hat, comfortable and practical, a piece sure to turn heads everywhere you go. There is much technique to be learned in this process, from basic beginning structures to chase weave and twining, design and finish. We begin by refining our willow barks and choosing a style with a wide, narrow, or stylish brim. Enjoy three days working on a mold form, discussing options as we proceed. Finish with an elegant and strong folded edge border and the option of a very cool felted headband. To personalize we can also incorporate treasures you bring along. This is three days of concentrated work for experienced weavers. Students ages 16+ are welcome.
