Rush Hats

Postby Mochyn » Sun Mar 23, 2014 1:49 pm

Hello: I'm new here, although I suspect I know a lot of you already.

I need to make myself a rush hat suitable for c. 1461. Anyone done this? I'm guessing it should be bulrush type rushes, dried? Are they plaited and stitched to form, or what?

please help!

I think youre meant to use green rushes. rachel from crafty beggers runs courses from time to time, try weald and downland museum site, they run traditional craft courses

Rachel makes amazing hats, not sure of her contact details though I'm afraid.
