Coronavirus Inspired Felted Hat

Art Exhibitions Coronavirus Art Exhibition Millinery News Online Education

Anything can inspire a hat, right? Even the Coronavirus?

In March, Fiona Duthie, a wonderful artist, and feltmaking teacher announced her 'Separate yet Connected' creative challenge. Fiona encouraged us, her current and former students, to use the theme of the Coronavirus, whether literally or metaphorically, to make felted art.

You can visit the exciting results of our felted pieces, which include wearables, wall art, sculptures, and more, HERE on Fiona's website.

While I normally create 'artistic' hats, I make art exhibition ones less frequently because they tend to be more technically involved and less wearable, to boot. However compared to my Vegas Creamsicle, this Covid-19 inspired hat is less of an engineering challenge.
