Ms. Callaghan’s Hat Designers of the Future

November 27, 2012

By Will

We were looking at various hat designs this week for Art.  We learned about Philip Treacy, an Irish hat maker from Galway who has become a very successful milliner! A milliner is a person who makes hats for ladies and a hatter makes hats for men, just like the Mad Hatter in Alice in Wonderland! Philip Treacy has designed hats for lots of famous people from Lady Gaga to Harry Potter.  We loved looking at all the different designs and got inspiration for our own!

We also learned where the phrase as mad as a hatter came from…ask your son to fill you in! 🙂

Philip Treacy has some stiff competition from Miss Callaghan’s class!

Have a look at the different patterns we came up with…
