Hat class in France!

My hat in progress

I attended a class at Lucy Till Hats atelier in Saint-Quentin La Poterie in the south of France in the beginning of October. It was a fantastic experience working closely with the instructor and Lucy in a new technique. This is one of my hats in the drying stage pinned on the block.

(The strange device to the left is an old hat stretcher.)

I was in Lucy’s tiny space for 3 days. We stayed in the nearby town of Uzes for a week and it’s a place I will go back to. I loved it. The hat took some time as the free-hand blocking technique is new to me but I think it came out ok.

Now it isn’t quite finished yet but I think it was a success!

I can’t wait to make these hats in my studio!
