'''The Project:'''
 +
 
 +
As you can see from the wild variety of hats produced this way, finished projects can be simple or complex, so credits are assigned on a variable basis depending on the design effort and technical complexity of the finished project. Instructions would also vary wildly depending on the desired hat to be made. This is therefore a "free form" assignment, where any student can try out any design or technique that he/she wants to test, including parts of techniques seen in other projects listed.
 +
 
 +
When you have designed and made your headdress, photograph the rendering and the headdress as jpeg files and post them to your File folder at the class
 +
 
 +
[http://groups.yahoo.com/group/thr254/|eGroup]. Post a message to the group telling folks how you did your project, and letting everyone know you have posted these pictures so you can get feedback.

Mass produced and rather unattractive, the standard baseball cap can be found at any thrift store, and is easily found at

Transfer Stations for free in Alaska in Summer. We have found here at UAF that they make excellent bases for all sorts of big headdresses, since they are pretty stable and size- adjustable, and easy to sew or glue to. In most cases where one would ordinarily use a buckram skullcap base for a headpiece, we use these caps, since they are easily available and free, and adjust for multi sizes.

Here we make a couple of quickie showgirl headdresses for

12th Night out of Piñatas, tinsel and caps:

The Project:

As you can see from the wild variety of hats produced this way, finished projects can be simple or complex, so credits are assigned on a variable basis depending on the design effort and technical complexity of the finished project. Instructions would also vary wildly depending on the desired hat to be made. This is therefore a "free form" assignment, where any student can try out any design or technique that he/she wants to test, including parts of techniques seen in other projects listed.

When you have designed and made your headdress, photograph the rendering and the headdress as jpeg files and post them to your File folder at the class

[1]. Post a message to the group telling folks how you did your project, and letting everyone know you have posted these pictures so you can get feedback.
