wattlework



I´m keen on any mechanical skill, and I was delighted with this sunshade I saw at the beach.
Look at this elaborate wattle work ! ..hopefully made by people who are paid for this fair!


....made to brave the wind and spending shadow just like a tree!




May I introduce:
My sun hat!

also a gorgeous wattle work! ...( the braid was added by me)


It is a very old hat, made by hand, just like the famous Panama-hat ! (here you can see how they are made!)
