Homeward Bound Festival - Make Your Own Sou’wester Hat
165 Kings Road Arches
Welcome to a swashbuckling sou’wester hat making workshop for all those sailors out there! Come and spend the morning with Diana Uprichard of DOLLY clothing to make the ultimate in weather proof headgear – with a large brim to keep the splashes off your face and to stop the water trickling down your neck on a rainy day.
If you have some experience of using a sewing machine that is excellent, but fear not as Diana is a pro at showing those who have never touched a sewing machine how to get started - you may just have to do some finishing touches by hand at home (but plenty of guidance will be given).
Even better, Diana is a dedicated campaigner for sustainable fashion, leading events to explore why our clothes are costing the earth and what we each can do to be the change.
Adults, kids, boys, girls, pirates and parrots are all welcome (if parrot or under 18 you will need accompanied by a paying adult)!
