Explore RAMM’s collection of hats and bonnets in this half-day course.

Do you know your hat etiquette? What was ‘hat honour’ and when should you never wear a hat?

Find out the answers to some of these questions in our workshop where we will discuss changing fashions, taste and etiquette in terms of hats and bonnets - a matter of great importance to Victorian fashion writers. There will also be a chance to see examples of fashionable hats and bonnets from the 19th and 20th century and to learn more about materials and techniques for making them.
