I am a textile artist specialising in unusual, innovative and unique hats and headwear. All original, my designs are handwoven using silk, lambswool, acrylic and cotton, to create individual pieces of wearable sculpture. From the elaborately eccentric to a modern take on the traditional beret.
What to expect: A warm welcome to my large, bright, busy, studio bursting with colour, hats of every description, tools, baskets of wool, works in progress, exhibition pieces, and sketches. Have fun “trying on”, while l explain techniques over tea or coffee.
Directions: From Wigtown take B733 towards Kirkcowan for 4 miles. From Newton Stewart take A75 towards Stranraer, take 2nd left after small cottage hospital onto minor road, follow for 5 miles.
Recommendation: Old Bank Bookshop,
7 South Main Street, Wigtown, DG8 9EH – Joyce & Ian have 1000s of high quality, antiquarian, and 2nd hand books and sheet music.
