About the Course
Come and use the selection of hat blocks available at Kerry Kernan Millinery.
This will enable you to create your own hat in a style that you would like. There are many styles that you can complete in a day but if you wish to create a design that would take longer I can book you in for a follow up day or your could book onto one of my hat making weekends.
You can decorate your new hat with a variety of trimmings after the workshop or why not book onto one of my other workshops to create your own special embellishment?
This workshop will teach you how to block the fabric, how to wire the edge and how to trim the edge with Petersham ribbon.
No experience necessary but a willingness to use hand stitching is necessary!
If you are interested in this workshop but cannot make these dates, please get in touch and I will happily work with you to find a suitable date.

A fantastic day, so much to learn, such a great teacher.
Could not believe what we achieved in one day and very happy with what Kerry enabled me to make.

I have completed two workshops with Kerry who is friendly, professional and well organised. Kerry gives you plenty of individual attention and shares her extensive knowledge and contacts generously. Coffee and cake were a bonus too!

I thoroughly enjoyed my workshop experience with Kerry in her beautiful hat shop. As a student, I went to her with specific project requirements, which I felt was a tall order for a first attempt. Kerry not only listened to my requirements, but embraced them and shared my enthusiasm as my mini bowler hat came together!
The Fold, where the Kerry Kernan shop is situated is a lovely collection of eclectic shops and coffee shop, and the other shop owners popped in to say hello to me too!
If you’re thinking of having a go at Millinery, I would thoroughly recommend spending the day Kerry, where you will be guaranteed good company, plenty of tea ….and amazing homemade cake!
Thanks again Kerry and I’m already looking forward to my next experience with you 😊
