Imagine my surprise to find one of my designs as Hat of the Month in HaTalk magazine! I have been totally spoilt by the editorial team over the last couple of months!
I am extremely honoured to announce that I have been granted not only the cover spot this month (again!) but also the coveted Hat of the Month feature pages telling the story of my hat for the Made in Sheffield exhibition at Millenium Gallery.
This was my first attempt at working with leather and I was thrilled with the results. It was even more exciting to be able to work with lasers for the final trimmings.
If you would like to find out more about the story of the hat, you can read the whole story here and I will also be “In Conversation” with Giles Grover of Small Machines, who helped me create this ambitious design, as part of the Year of Making talks during The Festival of the Mind. We will be at The Spiegeltent in Barkers Pool on Monday 19th September at 2pm.
PS. I’ll can also let you into a little secret, the cover image was actually taken on my phone. I have no idea how I managed to take such a good photo and I fear I couldn’t repeat it again if I tried!
