Anastasia Caples is an Irish Designer and Craftsperson living and working in County Donegal.
Anastasia graduated from The National College of Art and Design, Dublin and The University of Art and Design, Helsinki with BDES (Hons) in textile design.
This led to a varied and interesting path which saw her work in the areas of textile design, retailing and art & design education in Ireland and abroad.
On settling in County Donegal and renovating their traditional Irish cottage with her husband, she found herself exploring a long held interest in making hats.
After completing an inspiring course in blocking felt hats at The Lina Stein School of Millinery, Co Mayo, Anastasia set about bringing her ideas to fruition.
The results are a collection of hand blocked felt hats and a range of soft hats and fingerless gloves made from upcycled wool.
