Bridport Hat Festival 2017

Tess AlexanderComment

Bridport Hat Festival takes place in Dorset at the beginning of every September, with part of the festivities being the Milliners and Hatters Open Competition. I was very happy that the above piece, 'Twist and Turn', was awarded a Highly Commended this year. The piece was made from a single striped wool hat felt, using a hand-carved hat block and trim of swirls, paying careful attention to the line-up and arrangement of stripes.
