CakeTin Hats

Fabric - Fibre Art

Chris Hall, creator of CakeTin Hat Designs felts hats in her home based studio in Prince Edward County. She also teaches felting workshops at Rosehaven Yarn Shop in Picton, ON.

Chris studied art at the Ontario College of Art and York University. When she discovered felting about ten years ago it allowed her to immerse herself into a completely new medium using wool and silk fibre.

“Felt is one of the oldest hand made textiles created by compressing natural fibres into fabric using only the hands, pure olive oil soap and water. Working with wool allowed me to push myself technically and creatively in different directions. I love designing and working with felt for so many reasons. It is organic, sustainable, resilient, strong, warm, vibrant and beautiful to look at and touch. Through the felting process the fibres are formed into unique, heirloom pieces of wearable art and sculpture making each hat truly one of a kind!
