A one-day bucket hat making workshop hosted by The System.

Choose from three different bucket hat designs with varying degrees of difficulty. You’ll learn to sew these smaller and more intricate pieces, with a focus on design and detailing.

This class is perfect for people with some sewing experience, but beginner sewers are welcome and will be taught how to sew the easiest of the three bucket hat designs.

Skills that will be focused on in this workshop include:

  • Bias binding
  • Sewing flat seams onto curved edges
  • Zig-zag stitching and its uses
  • Decorative top-stitch accurately
  • Pressing to finish a product professionally

You will learn many other useful sewing techniques that are transferable to other sewing projects.

This class has a maximum of 8 students.

What will be provided?

  • All materials, threads, machinery, and tools will be provided by The System.
  • A variety of ready-cut styles will be prepared for the class in two different sizes. There will be three styles that have three different levels of challenge. It will be recommended that you use the pre-cut styles, but time permitting you may be able to cut out something not prepared from our fabrics.
  • If you choose to make your bucket hat using our silks, we will email you so that we can pre-prepare your desired colours and style.
  • Time permitting you may also cut out extra hats from our patterns to sew at home.
  • You will also be permitted to copy a pattern onto paper for your own domestic use.
  • Coffee, Black & Japanese green tea will be provided for refreshments.
