I am so delighted to announce I have been awarded a QEST Scholarship for Millinery. I am honoured to be part of the incredible group of talented craftspeople.
Firstly I will be learning historical and theatrical hat making with the renowned Sophie Lambe @reel.millinery who has made some of my favourite hats in film, including several for the recent @emmafilm directed by @autumndewilde
Secondly, with the unbelievably talented @annetomlinflowers , I will be learning several flower making skills (that’s right she made the flowers in the first picture!) both at @westdeancollege and one to one.
And finally with master milliner @ianbennettmillinery I will learn his incredible skills and techniques with feathers, plus how to make my own blocks, from cardboard and carving styrofoam!
Along with my fellow 2022 Scholars I will also embark on the incredible mentoring scheme run by @cockpitstudios which will be invaluable, I really cannot wait!
