Great Wool Wet Felt Hat Class
Yesterday Bill and Andy came from Illinois to learn about making a wet felted hat on a Hat Shaper. Good thing they are both so energetic because Suzanne did put them through some fast paces.
They were so agreeable to try her technique that they didn't complain when we had our math problems designing a template for the resist, not even a grumble when we had to work extra hard for the brims to shape correctly. Actually, when all goes perfect I don't think you learn as much as when we work out a problem together.
The best part was today when the guys came back to show their trimmed and dry hats. They fit Bill perfectly, little large for Andy so he will use a size smaller Hat Shaper. They were obviously pleased with the outcome which Made My Day.
