Winter warmer beanie workshop


Date: 14 February 2009

It's still cold outside, but we've got ways to warm you up this Valentine's Day!

Spend a cosy morning at the museum making yourself the perfect partner for February the 14th - a bejewelled pull-on hat that will attract admiring glances wherever you go.

With maverick milliner Mary Jane Baxter you'll learn how to recycle a jumper into a unique and practical beanie or turban.

You'll have at your disposal a treasure-trove of goodies with which to embellish your beanie and really make an impact.

Single? You won't be for long if you're wearing this little beauty!

Cost: £45 including entrance to our new exhibition, Swedish Fashion - Exploring a New Identity

What to bring:
Participants can either bring along a jumper of their own to recycle or use one provided by the museum. All other materials are provided.

Space is limited so advance booking is essential

About Mary Jane Baxter
Mary Jane is a thoroughly modern milliner with a love of the past. After working for fifteen years as a journalist, the hat-bug got the better of her and she decided to study millinery professionally. Having trained with hat-maker-to-the-stars Stephen Jones for two years, she set up her own label. Her first collection was snapped up by Harvey Nichols in Knightsbridge and since then she's sold her hats on-line and through one-off boutiques. She's made hats for dancers and divas, ladies who lunch, girls with hattitude and burlesque belles! Last year, she set up Mary Jane's Mobile Millinery taking hat-making to the road, running creative workshops for crafty creatives and was featured on BBC 2's "Twiggy's Frock Exchange".
