Another fun workshop was held at Kerry Kernan Millinery last weekend. My student, Michelle, had never made a hat before but was keen on learning how. She decided upon a vintage style button hat, made from wool tweed, and finished with a co-ordinating tweed flower - a fabulous choice!
It is always lovely to spend a day with other 'creative minded' people and to see the value they get out of a day simply working with their hands to produce something that they are so proud of.
Michelle worked hard all day and was rewarded at the end with a really beautiful hat that she can wear and show off as something that is 'me made'! It may cost her husband a day at the races though!
I have a series of dates coming up before Christmas if anyone else would like to create something as lovely as Michelle's. Gift vouchers for workshops also make incredible presents; giving someone the gift of a day to themselves to immerse themselves in creativity is something they will treasure for a long time. Just be warned....it may cost you a flash day out so they can parade their handiwork!!
