Millinery Workshops are organised throughout the year and can be tailored to suit the individual or group.The focus of the workshop is to learn new skills in a creative and relaxing environment. I will give you a personal insight into how I work and share my skills and specialised techniques with you. The workshop venue is my beautiful home located in the charming village of Alan with views of the Pyrenees.
