During this class, you will use the finest Australian merino wool and felting techniques to make two hats.

You will start by creating a wearable hat for daily use. Judit will bring different hat-prototypes for reference. Once the structure has been created, you can add colourful pure woven silk to the surface, or just simply work with wool. You can decorate it with small 3D elements, such as flowers, as desired, or keep it in a simple design.

The second will be a sculptural hat, which features 3D elements felted together.

This class is aimed at the more-experienced felt-maker.

This is the first of Judit Toth-Pocs’s two Big Cat masterclasses. You can find details of her second class, Jewelleries with Chain Metals, which takes place on the days following this class, here. The two classes are designed to offer complementary routes of exploration, but also to stand alone for anyone unable to attend both.

About the tutor

Judit lives and works in Kecskemét with her family, and has exhibited all around Europe. Her work is characterised by the 3D, creating statue-like pieces she makes from a single piece of felt. She says ‘I like to make order from chaos and the feeling of how the tangled fibres become tame and unified under my hands. I like to incorporate different materials in my works, rubbing them together to give a feeling as if they had always belonged together.’
