A recent venture for me is the setting up of ‘The Cotswolds School of Arts & Crafts‘ with the fabulous Louise Pocock Artisan Hatmaker. Louise was the reason for my adventure into millinery many years ago now and remains a great mentor and buddy today!!
The school is a collaboration between the two of us with the aim of bringing quality tutors and workshops to the Cotswolds; a beautiful part of middle England.
The first of these workshops features the amazing Bridget Bailey. This morning, a group of ladies battled the elements and floods to arrive at The Lygon Arms in Chipping Campden for an incredible first day of dyeing sinamay, rolling edges and perfecting our points!!
A great day was had by all and we cannot wait for tomorrow!
A well deserved sleep is needed now after a busy day and the baking of a huge chocolate cake in readiness for tomorrow!
