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.

'''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.
