Hat & Headdress making
Learn how to design and make your own summer headpiece or cocktail hat. Combine craft skills with fashion artistry to learn the essentials of millinery. Jessie will teach a variety of millinery techniques, which will include how to design a style to suit your face/hair/physique; how to hand-block straw to make a base for your hat; how to trim your creation with feathers, flowers, veiling; and how to ensure a perfect and discreet fit. Prior millinery experience isn’t necessary, although some experience of hand sewing will be an advantage.

All tools and equipment is provided and you can purchase the material from the workshop provider on the day as you go along.
Strippers? Oh goodness gracious no! If you are definitely not a “let’s hire a stripper” kinda girl… but wouldn’t mind seeing something beautiful and erm learn something too then why not have a day learning s bit of life drawing. We can supply you with a model or if you are a daring bunch you can take it in turns to be the model and our tutors will take you through step by step guides so you all come away with something to remember the day with too.
