Skippko Project - Hats Off!«Back to Projects Index
What they said:
“Never knew there was so much you could learn about hats!”
“I have done something I did not think I could do, making hats. Never done anything like it in my life.”
Hats Off! was an arts and heritage project all about hats and headwear.
Four older people’s groups turned their stories about hats into amazing artworks and had fun with Leeds Museums’ clothing and fashion collections. Participants learned about each other’s lives and cultures, and took part in a film about the project.
The project artwork was on display at Leeds Museums’ Discovery Centre for several weeks, and formed the centrepiece of a public event.
Further workshop sessions at Leeds Museums’ Discovery Centre enabled local schoolchildren to learn about the project.
