Hat Making Courses and Tuition

Would you like to learn how to make couture hats? Bobbi runs ‘one to one’ tuition days in her Worcestershire studio. She also caters for hen parties and group bookings.

You may be a complete beginner, or perhaps you are an existing milliner wanting to hone a few skills. It could be you want to learn the art of hat making with a view to it becoming a business. Bobbi can cover all aspects of millinery, felt, straw, sinamay, fabric covered shapes, leather – in fact any material you may wish to work with.

A day or a series of days can be tailor made to your individual requirements.

A range of different aspects of hat making can be covered, fascinators, hatinators, pill boxes, perchers, wedding hats, show hats, theatrical hats and so on. All materials can be supplied, unless something specific is required, in which case you may wish to bring your own. Materials are charged extra to any tuition cost.

“I spent three days with Bobbi working on a ‘one to one’ basis and enjoyed it so much I am still buzzing. Bobbi is such a great teacher, patient and inspiring and we managed to make two hats, one of which was a silk covered crown and brim which involved skills that I had not yet experienced. I cannot wait until my next visit.”

Hat making for groups, teams and hen parties

Learning together as a group can be so much fun! Maybe you are a small group of girls or boys wanting a day out doing something entirely different, a team who work together and want a ‘team-building day’ to get to know each other better or a hen party wanting to make hatinators for the wedding.

If you are any of the above then the ideal place to learn hat making is with Bobbi. Please contact her to talk about dates, requirements and prices.

A day is usually from 10.00 until 4.00 with tea and coffee throughout and a light lunch included.

Although based in the rural Worcestershire countryside, Bobbi’s studio is just minutes from the M5 making it easily reached from Gloucestershire, Warwickshire, West Midlands, Staffordshire and the East Midlands.

“Bobbi is a great teacher, explaining things effectively and providing clear feedback, and her knowledge of millinery is very impressive. She is also a friendly and fun person to chat with and I had a wonderful day.”
