Video: Shirley Hughes on how to wear a hat

Shirley Hughes CBE is one of Britain's best known illustrators of children's books, perhaps best known for her Alfie series (and let's not forget Dogger.) She is also a hat enthusiast. We visited her home to be let into her world of wonder: words, drawings and so our Jane Garvey could be given advice on how to wear a hat properly.

Shirley is the first guest editor of The Woman's Hour Takeover Week 2017. Listen to her programme live on Monday 26th June at 10:00 BST or catch up online or with your favourite podcast provider.
