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 start to 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.


Felt, sinamay, stiffener, wire and Petersham ribbon are provided for an additional £20 in a range of colours, 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.  


What do I need to bring:


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.
