Embrace upcycling and create a hat from repurposed materials, guided by milliner Anne Colquitt.
Learn about the sustainable practice of upcycling, and give some cotton comfort denim a second-life.
Working from one of three hat patterns – a 1920s Cloche, a driver’s cap, or a medium brim sun-style hat – you’ll learn which style suits your symmetry and proportions, and how to repurpose denim in this workshop that’s mindful of reducing waste.
