Clare Fildes originally commissioned me to design and make the teacup hats for Bury Youth Dance Company for St George’s Day parade. A couple of years later, I was really pleased when Clare approached me about her and Ruth Jones from Axial dance using them for a new street theatre show, Tea Club.

You have see video of Tea Club in action here on Vimeo. Or take a peek at the original Bury Youth Dance performance BYDC on YouTube.

In 2015, Clare & Ruth commissioned me to design and make hats for their new show Trixie & Tilly Go Cycling. They were keen to keep the all white palate and vintage feel.

Both shows regularly appear at festivals across the UK and are available for booking. Please contact Ruth Jones by email:
