Every spring and autumn groups from Holland, organised by Yvon van der Weide, come to Las Negras for an arts and crafts holiday.
This mainly focusses on sculpture. personally tutored by Yvon, but other crafts, including hat making are also offered.
An expert, Piet van Manen,instructs the ladies during the week on how to create their hats. He is in the centre of the first photo. At 84 years of age he won the title of Best Hatmaker in Holland last May.
Here are some photos of the ladies exhibiting their creations at the end of course festivities last night.
