A Professional Milliner

Sherry Richardson who is a professional milliner, has lived and worked in a rural part of South Yorkshire for most of her adult life and it has often been country life and the countryside which has inspired her work.

Sherry, who works with a passion enthuses all she meets and her enthusiasm is infectious. For this reason she is now beginning a series of Talks and Workshops to share her life’s work, because, as Sherry says, ‘Hats are fun and it is now an  exciting time as I  plan and prepare for these forthcoming events.’

Talks To Share her Millinery Experience and Work

Sherry discovered the art of millinery in her mid-thirties whilst embarking on a course in Huddersfield. At that time this was the only millinery course outside London. Once on the course Sherry was hooked and has been passionate about hat design ever since. Her talk starts with that journey. They will take the listener through some of her creations over the last 2 decades to the present day.

The impact of hats on our society through history, the wearing, designing and making of  hats still fascinates Sherry. These topics will also be explored during the talk.
