Up wi' the bonnets!

As part of a project with V&A Dundee, Mrs Brown's class and a class from Our Ladys RCPS have been working with milliners to design and create 'bonnets'.  The Hilltown was traditionally the area of Dundee famous for its bonnet making, one of the Nine Trades of Dundee.

Today saw the culmination of all the hard work when the children modelled their creations on the catwalk in the Wellgate in front of a large crowd of well wishers.  Many parents also modelled as many bonnets were designed for them, so well done to all who braved the bright lights and the cameras!

It was a fantastic occasion and the children did their schools and themselves proud!  More photos in P5/4's gallery.
