Rush hat

Medieval Re-enactors wove a rush hat for themselves in a very industrious one day workshop. Twined on hat blocks they made to measure of their own head dimensions. This hat is almost ready for the border and has been mostly paired with small sections of packing and a few rows of rib randing on the brim.

Marianne modelling her creation-the brim was to be trimmed next day when the rush had dried and rested. Great first time rush weaving.
