Our Autumn programme of workshops is now available and we are excited to have Bridget Bailey of Bailey Tomlin with us again. Bridget will be sharing her secrets about making flowers. This is something that people ask us about all the time so we hope that you will book early to avoid disappointment!
Atelier Millinery’s Fascinator workshop based on our tried and tested ‘recipes’ has proved very popular. We have added to our repertoire so you can do it all over again and learn something new every time.
Friend of the boutique, April-Sarah is back again to teach the Clutch Bag workshop – a must for all those weddings and Autumn outings. We are also looking forward to her new masterclass in beaded headdresses and details will follow soon with a date in December.

… one of today’s students who comes from the school of ‘more is more’! We were impressed with this bold approach to trimming from both mother and daughter.
All in all, it was another productive afternoon with three very lovely finished pieces: one destined for Ascot, one tropical explosion and one bridal.
Thanks to The Vintage Bride for such a lovely report of her recent experience with us at Atelier Millinery. We loved the finished headpiece – very Coco!
