A window into the chaos of my millinery and the paths that I follow to make sense of developing a sustainable venture around hats.
The beautiful man

Helene has had a tougher time on the HNC than most traveling from North Wales, having a range of health and financial issues yet always resolute and passionate about millinery and getting the most out of every day. I am thrilled that she has been awarded a grant from the Arts Council to develop a collection around country pursuits and research the history of millinery with a view to creating a book.
Marisa has also had a tough journey through the HNC she is an incredibly talented designer and milliner who is a true perfectionist in achieving the best finish at all times in all the work she does. This proved highly effective last year when she achieved 2nd prize in the Feltmakers competition. Her final collection shows a highly innovative use of felt, leather and perspex to create strak graphic headwear.
