About Kerry Kernan Millinery & Textiles
I studied and taught a wide range of textiles skills for twenty years, having been a qualified Textiles teacher. In this time, I discovered my love for millinery and accessories and created many bespoke creations for clients before deciding to establish my business, 'Kerry Kernan Millinery & Textiles'.
In August 2018 I opened the doors to my new studio based at The Fold in Worcester. From this beautiful location I offer a full programme of workshops, surrounded by countryside and a lovely cafe!
