The 2018 summer school will consist of 4 days’ tuition during which you will make both a cocktail hat and large brimmed hat. In the first two days Jane will demonstrate and teach participants how to make a straw cocktail hat. Students will then learn how to trim their hat bases using couture millinery techniques. In the second half Jane will show students how to make a larger brimmed straw hat and how to trim and finish them to a couture standard. This is a fantastic opportunity to get creative, and indulge in your more experimental and innovative side.
What to Expect: Jane Taylor London workshop is a friendly and professional environment. You will be carrying out your workshop in the millinery studio where Jane and her team design and make the bespoke creations for clients. You will come away having learnt new skills that will enable you to successfully make and trim straw occasion wear hats and head pieces.
Tools Needed: We will provide one straw cone for the cocktail hat section and one straw capeline for the larger hat section of the workshop, colours will be discussed upon booking. You will need to bring any hat trimming you wish to use e.g. feathers, silk flowers. We will have a small selection that can be purchased on the day but we recommend bringing your own because we can’t guarantee what we will have in stock. You will need to bring your own thimble and apron but all other tools will be provided. Hatboxes will not be provided but can be purchased on the day.
Date, Time & Fees: The four days of summer school will run from 28th to 31st August 2018, 9:45am -5pm each day, £870.
There will be a 60-minute lunch break; the shop is situated next to lots of lovely cafes and restaurants. Cake and tea will be served mid-afternoon daily. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any dietary requirements.
