Hat Making Workshops

Wedding Hat

A cloche making workshop was given to Zuzana as a birthday present. The decoration  Zuzana made is one of my favourite designs, it was bright and beautifully made.

A few weeks later  Zuzana came back to the shop and ordered a hat to wear to a wedding.

We sat together for a long time designing her hat's decoration.

Once again the final design was a success and Zuzana looked beautiful.

And we have become friends! This all started with a birthday present.

Wedding Hat

One of our hats which was collected today. 
This will be worn to a wedding next month.

I thought I would video the client trying on her hat before it left the shop.

This design is one of our favourites as it perches elegantly just to the side of the forehead.
