Depending on the workshops you choose students will:


- Learn how to make a fascinator or block a cocktail hat or a hat with a brim.  


- Learn techniques to apply a wired edge and depending on chosen design learn finishing techniques.


Millinery requires hand sewing skills, you will leave with a blocked shape and the workshop is supported with a handout explaining the techniques required to finish your hat at home if needed. Further workshops and support may be booked if desired.


No previous millinery experience is necessary.


Materials are provided at an additional cost for your chosen workshop, if you have a particular colour in mind please let me know 2 weeks prior to the workshop. I have a small selection of tools available so there is no need to buy anything but if you do have the following items please bring them along:  


Please bring your own packed lunch, tea and coffee are provided along with a homemade treat.


Fabric and paper scissors

Pins – preferably .65mm steel

Needles – Millinery size 6,7 or 8

Tape measure





Selection of threads, various colours if possible

Camera or camera phone if you want to record the process.

Please bring anything you might like to incorporate into the hat it might be a piece of fabric, feathers a favourite brooch or some buttons not essential but I know lots of you have a wonderful stash of treasures.


To book your place please complete the booking form and return with your non refundable deposit. Places are available on a first come first served basis, and workshops have a small number of students. Please book early to avoid disappointment.
