Thinking Ahead ... warmer, sunnier occasions when one might need a hat or some kind of heargear!

I'm currently working on the new bridal collection from Sara Gadd Millinery, which features hand made silk flowers, pearls, lace and feathers. 

Dreaming up new ideas I usually look to both contemporary and historical headwear, flicking through magazines and online images for inspiration, this helps to get ideas flowing. I rummage through boxes of feathers, fabrics beads; generally make a mess, and the ideas start to come!

This Summer I have several dates for new workshop 'Hat Tricks' - If you have old hats gathering dust at home this could be just the thing for you!
Come and join us on this exciting new workshop. Bring along one or more used, special occasion hat with you & learn how to transform it into a Fabulous new Fascinator or headdress!
