Here is an example of the endless possibilities available when it comes to making hats when you let your creativity flow.
For these hats firstly I made the hat block which is the base shape all these hats are formed on. I did this by adjusting a sharp brim block which I then made into this Ascot style dish shape.
From there I created these four hats over the time I was working at John Boyds. As you can see they are all very different, using a variety of materials, colour combinations and trimmings, and I’m sure there are hundreds more styles waiting to be made!
