Unlock your creative juices and be inspired by milliner Victoria Single, who will help you create a sensational, sparkly headpiece to elevate your seasonal outfits. Victoria will show you some examples of her work and explain her design process to help inspire your own creations.
Whether your style icon is Grace Kelly, Brigitte Bardot or Blair Waldorf, Victoria will guide you through the steps you need to take to make a headpiece that suits your personal style. She will bring a variety of materials with her, from which you can choose to embellish your headband, including crystals, pearls, veiling, pompoms and feathers. The number of attendees is limited to ensure personal, hands-on attention.
Level: Beginner. Ability to sew on a button would be helpful!
What to bring: We will provide all the materials you need. Please however bring with you an apron and a bag or small box to take your creation home. If you would like to make a headpiece to match a particular dress, do please bring a picture of that outfit with you.
Drinks and nibbles are included. Recommended for ages 16+. Tickets are non- refundable.
The workshop will be held in the grounds at Far From The Madding Crowd in the village of Leavenheath, CO6 4PU. We will be in touch nearer the time with the exact location and any further information.
Tori set up her Vivienne Morgan Millinery line when living in the Middle East, where she created bespoke hats and headpieces for Dubai World Cup racegoers, wedding guests and fashionistas. She undertook an internship with Piers Atkinson, renowned milliner to the stars, which ignited her passion for cutting-edge millinery and fashion. Tori’s sculptural headpieces are wearable works of art. She is excited about bringing her elegant and whimsical headpieces to the heart of the Suffolk countryside and sharing her millinery skills and design ethos.
After working as a city lawyer for over a decade, Tori followed her dreams and moved to the Dedham Vale with her family. She has thrown herself into country life with her cocker spaniel and chickens, renovated two properties, redesigned the gardens and planted woodland and hedgerows. When she isn’t making hats, Tori can be found sourcing antiques, gardening, working on DIY projects and occasionally sitting down to update her Instagram account @thecurveddoor which documents her daily life.
