Unveiled – The Craft of Millinery
This exhibition brings together British milliners, chosen for their diverse designs and skills, to give an insight into the particular workings and craftsmanship of each. Supported by Fenwick and The Worshipful Company of Feltmakers, and hosted by The Art Workers’ Guild.
Curated by leading milliners Rachel Trevor Morgan, Edwina Ibbotson and Noel Stewart, the exhibition draws on their experience and knowledge to bring together the best of British millinery, including hats from Stephen Jones, Philip Treacy and Bridget Bailey. Their aim is to highlight the very special craft of millinery and its varied techniques, both modern and traditional. A working gallery forms part of the exhibition, where you can see hats being made over the three days. There is also a display of winning hats from the annual Feltmakers’ Design Competition.
Included in the week are ticketed talks and demonstrations.
This is a unique opportunity to access the beautiful interior of the The Art Workers’ Guild townhouse in Queen Square, Bloomsbury. Founded in 1884, the guild represents 350 artists, craftspeople and architects working at the highest levels of excellence in their professions.
