  • Description

Create your very own 1950s pill box hat!

Come and join our historical millinery specialist Jo Lance and make a vintage style silk pillbox hat, finished with a veil, using authentic millinery techniques from the period. You will learn to construct, wire and cover a hat foundation over a four hour workshop.

There will also be an opportunity to view beautiful examples of 1940s and 1950s hats from our extensive dress history collection, and gain inspiration for your millinery creativity!

All materials and equipment are included. Basic hand-sewing skills will be required but no prior millinery experience necessary.
