Steampunk Adventures

This gentleman gave a wonder presentation on straw hat making from the Victorian era. He had antique hats on display too that were lovely!
Here is a Mother Daughter matching pair.
I loved this hat!
Here is a back view. I love the shape of this hat. Allowing room for fashionable hair style of the day: The Bun!
A typical daily man's hat from the era. All hand woven.
Such fine workmanship!
A quick try at plaiting ourselves, using whole straw strands.

While shopping for hats at our panel presenters booth, I found this lovely hat...
So I just had to buy it!
