The sun hat

Haslach an der Mühl, Oberösterreich, Österreich

Introduction to the processing of straw wickerwork

In this course we will gain an insight into the craft of hat making and fashion design and learn the basic techniques. The focus will be on the processing of straw braids. We will work and experiment with Sinamay, Parasisol, Panama and other materials - from modelling the material, sewing in the headband, processing the brim and trimming, to the finished hat. As a result, each participant will be able to take home a sun hat of their own size and design.
