The Millinery Workshop runs for a week in September, as a part of our Summer School and will be taught by milliner and tutor, Jane Fryers. The workshop offers students the opportunity to develop their skill for making their own hats! Suitable for both beginners and intermediate students, the course is packed with tips, techniques and practical hands on experience. Here’s why you should book a place on the course today.
