Millinery Workshops Autumn 2016

I am really excited to launch our autumn schedule of millinery workshops!

All classes listed below are suitable for either the beginner or the more advanced  in our East Street Studio in Farnham and don’t forget we can also provide hen party or birthday party packages!

To book your place, email us at: or call us on: 01252 715039.

I look forward to having you on board, sharing millinery techniques and watching your creations come to life!



The ultimate flexible option for those who want to learn the art of millinery either on your own or with a group of friends.

You can choose any discipline from Sinamay hats, cocktail hats, and winter felt hats, silk flower making, fascinator making…. or any other ideas that you have.  All I ask is that if you come as a group that everyone follows the same discipline so that the teaching can be coherent for all attendees.

All basic materials supplied, but specific materials/colours may incur extra costs.

Please note that ambitious projects may not be able to be completed in one day and further hours may be required.

£250 per day 10am- 5pm

Or why not bring a friend with you for only £50 extra, two friends for £100 extra or 3 friends for just £135 extra!

Further hours will be chargeable £45 per hour plus £5 for each additional person.  Or at the day rate as above if another full day is required.

1-2-1 Tuition is available on Sundays, Mondays, and Tuesdays from 2nd October

If you require classes before October please get in touch to discuss.
