I had such a wonderful weekend teaching at WestDean College. What a talented bunch I had, some had never done millinery before and by the end of the course walked away with a finished hat with handmade and dyed flowers! And they all looked good on…. I’m very impressed!
I was honoured to be photographed by @timwillcocks_photographer for his amazing project One Shot Film in which he is photographing creatives in Hastings. Head over to his page to see his amazing pictures and all the talented and interesting folk of Hastings.
SS18’s Contrast Wave available in 3 colour ways. Here are two headdresses in Peach/Pink and Black/White and the bold Red/Fushia is mounted on a beautiful red silk base for extra impact! Available online soon or contact me for earlier purchase.
John Boyd, Royal Milliner, passed away last week peacefully at the age of 92. A wonderful Milliner, boss and dear friend. He had the most incredible millinery career spanning over 70 years and made many beautiful hats for Princess Diana and Princess Anne. Working alongside him for 5 years I learnt so much, he was the most inspiring and generous millinery teacher a young hat maker could ask for! He had an amazing zest for life and sense of fun, we often sat telling stories over a coffee and our sewing and he loved a good hat shop party!
A true unique soul xxxx RIP
I’ve been experimenting with a bit of lino cutting lately and absolutely loving being creative just for fun. If you buy a hat from me I will include a print for free. There are currently two to choose from or you can go for pot luck and get a surprise! If you do not need to buy a hat right now then you can purchase a print for £10 with free pp.
