'Old Hat' Recycled Hat Exhibition

It's been another busy week....

Saturday 18th Sara took to the stage in The Lanes Shopping Centre in Carlisle and presented 'Hat Tricks' providing some great ideas for ladies night at Carlisle Races. Sara showed ideas for re trimming old hats and creating a fascinator with the trimmings!

'Old Hat' in Newspaper, Flyers & Wire.

On Thursday 16th July 'Old Hat' went on display at High Head Sculpture Valley.

This latest collection of headwear has been inspired by a recent period of work undertaken with Grampus Training and Heritage Limited, a local company who work with students from all over Europe.
Sara has been increasingly interested in the potential of using recycled materials to create exciting new pieces. Sara adopted a simplistic approach to create the designs, drawing upon personal skills and problem solving to transform recycled objects into ‘something else’. Each creation has been inspired by the recycled object in its original state with minimal use of additional materials. The potential for recycled fashion is endless!

Any body wishing to try their hand at creating something from nothing can enrol on a new ‘Fashion Junkie Workshop’. Participants will have the opportunity to make their own exciting creations from recyclables! Or if you’d like a more traditional approach you can try Retrimming an old hat at an ‘Old Hat Tricks’ workshop; the next one is Saturday 22nd August 10am – 4pm at The Studio in Corby Hill near Carlisle.

For further details, contact Sara for directions to go and see the collection in the flesh visit

Hope you enjoy!
