Portfolio – Sydney


A blue S shape headpiece covered with intricately folded Petersham ribbon and ribbon rosettes.

The whole hat is handmade by me at my studio in rural Essex. The base is made in buckram, with a wire added to maintain the shape, then covered in blue silk.

There is over 10 metres of ribbon folded to make the origami design which covers the hat.

It is then lined with silk from Sudbury in Suffolk.

Size maximum length 9 inches – width 6 inches

This can be made in other colours, please contact me to discuss and allow 4 weeks from order for delivery.

Sydney is named after the Sydney Opera House which I was fortunate enough to visit in 2018. I hadn’t realised until I saw it up close that the whole roof is covered in tiny mosaic tiles.
