SKU: 364115376135191

OCTOBER TO DECEMBER 2020

A complete millinery course for beginners.

This is an extremely successful class being run online through Zoom. Class sizes are small to ensure you receive the personal support you need.

We pride ourselves on giving you the skills to create your own designs. You will be taught fundamental principles of designing different hats and receive 1-2-1 support to help you make your own stylish creations. You can expect to make, decorate and finish six hats of your own design by the end of this course. You will not be copying other milliners' designs.

Comprising 60 hours teaching time and approximately 20 hours of independent learning, this course is essential for all budding new milliners.
