An afternoon with Claire Muir


On the 9th of February we had a wonderful afternoon with Claire Muir and her hats and fascinators. Claire talked about her life making hats. It was enthralling to hear about the creatiive work she did with shows such as Hot Ice in Blackpool. Her work is beautiful - hats made using machine embroidery on dissolvable fabric and wires. At the end we were able to try on the hats . We were fortunate that day to have a professional photographer with us who was taking photographs for an exhibition on the use of the building we use. It has been really difficult to choose a selection of photos. I have more if you want to see them.
