Fibre artist puts a lid on all four seasons with hat exhibition.
From fedoras, crowns, Stetsons, boaters, and yes, even hoodies, hats can express our personalities – nowhere more charmingly than in this Margaret Hall exhibit of 48 hats on display in the Kiwanis Gallery.
Following the purchase of a new hat resist (or pattern) in the fall of 2019, local fibre artist Margaret Hall decided to complete a year’s project of making four felted hats a month. She used only her new hat pattern (sometimes called a “block”) as a basis for every hat she made, with 48 stunning results!
By March of 2020, as the pandemic surged, she found herself linking her theme to her garden, neighbourhood, and Red Deer’s parks. Seasonal changes, with only a slight nod to the pandemic, became her motivation. The hats follow not only the seasons but the colour palette and creativity of an artist who delves far beyond a purely commonplace look at hats to the fanciful, quirky, whimsical, and downright charming.
