on the 8th and 9th of July (Saturday and Sunday) 2023

from 5pm to 11 pm (Central European Time)

12 hours long online course with Judit Pócs.

Come and join the course if you would like to make a special light autumn-winter hat decorated with pleated silk with me.

I recommend this course for advanced feltmakers.

What will you learn?

In this course, we will make a particularly elegant but light hat, which is suitable for autumn and winter wear. We will work with 16 Micron Australian merino wool tops, combined with Pongé and Chiffon silk. We will apply pleated Pongé silk decoration on the lower part of the hat, on the band surrounding the forehead.
The pleats optically widen this band, so even ladies with rounder faces can wear this design with pleasure. (I note in parentheses that a table top of at least 170 cm long will be needed to make this).
The area above the pleated part is decorated with Chiffon silk strips, which are placed next to each other like a mosaic, thus achieving the graphic design.
After the fulling we will fold and shape the hat and the folds can be fixed with a few stitches after drying.
During the live and interactive sessions you will receive step by step assistance by me on how to create this hat.
