Description

Design and Make Hats provides a thoroughly beautiful and comprehensive introduction to the craft of millinery. First the author discusses design and inspiration, and then she takes the reader through a survey of the materials and techniques generally used in millinery. Then the reader is guided through fourteen fashionable hat designs, easy to make from inexpensive and accessible fabrics and components, clearly laid out in an instructive and attractive design. Each project is set out in a simple and straightforward way, starting with an image of the finished piece, listing the supplies you will need and the basic tools required, then following with an illustrated making sequence. Even absolute beginners can confidently and successfully tackle all the projects. Finally there is a section of pattern-cutting, taking you through a variety of styles and shapes. By the end of the book you will feel confident enough to complete a variety of hats, as well as design your own unique styles.

Author Biography

Karen Henriksen has her own successful business (Karen Henriksen - Handmade Modern Millinery). She makes hats and caps that are easy to wear, yet striking in their originality. Accessibility is paramount - some of her pieces can be sculptural or architectural, but they are always comfortable to wear and flattering. Her latest range is contemporary caps for women and men, made in asymmetric, modern shapes. She did an MA at the Royal College of Art focusing on Sculptural Millinery, and she currently has a studio at Cockpit Arts. Her hats are notable for their high quality finishes, original designs, and the limited-edition, handmade feel she gives to each piece. Her work can be seen on her website: www.karenhenriksen.co.uk.
