About the Course

Would you like to broaden your millinery skills?

... learn how to create your very own headpieces, fascinators… transforming them into unique jewel headresses?

…or perhaps you’re passionate about hats, fascinators, headdresses and would like to start learning more about the art of millinery!

Join us at our first Masterclass in the UK!

This course is suitable for professionals in millinery and fashion, beginners who want to start out in the world of millinery or for people who want to make headdresses for an upcoming event.

On this 2-day workshop you will learn how to create two exclusive headpieces with Italian mesh together with other embellishments. We will teach you how to form and shape this versatile material using different techniques; make different leaves and flowers whereby you can create different floral compositions, wire cristals and different embellishments, and make beautiful designs which you will learn how to assemble onto a vine or headband with silk thread.

By the end of the course you will take home two unique headpieces!

This is a completely hands-on practical learning experience which focuses on the skills used to design these jewel headresses, where our creativity can run wild and where we can share ideas and inspire each other. Creativity has no limits!!!

There will be two teachers so all abilities are welcome and to ensure each student gets personalized attention the class sizes are 5 to 10 students maximum

Geraldine Penistone and Belen Escacha have been designing bespoke headdresses since 2012 and 2008, and have trained with national and international milliners. They are both members of the Spanish Association of Milliners.

Great course! I’ve done different kinds of courses and I decided to do the course to learn other techniques to add to my fashion designs. What I liked the most was how they explained and guided us through every step, the technique , the friendly and relaxing atmosphere in the group, even though no time was wasted! Thanks, Geraldine and Belen! xx
