Hats Demand a Lot of You

Susan Sances

Thread painting.

Thread paintings of three vintage photos of women wearing hats.The hats are made
from fabric and netting that has been sewn onto the thread painted portraits, The
title came from a quote by Neil Gaiman: “Some hats can only be worn if you’re
willing to be jaunty, to set them at an angle and to walk beneath them with a spring in
your stride as if you’re only a step away from dancing, They demand a lot from you.”
