Weave your very own bespoke rush hat with Rachel Frost

An opportunity to make your own woven rush hat using the indigenous common bulrush, Scirpus Lacustris, collected from the river Thames. Starting with your own custom-made hat block, you will be using this wonderfully supple material and techniques common to basketry to create a unique hat to wear and treasure.

If you are planning to make a hat for someone else, it would be useful to obtain their head size. Using a soft tape measure, measure the head across the forehead / above the ears i.e. the widest part.
