Sherry, a Milliner of the highest quality works with a passion and enthuses all she meets with infectious sharing of her talent. For this reason, she invites commissions for that special event as well as ready made hats and fascinators. Alongside this and to share her talent and enthusisam she offers 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.’
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.
This talk explores the Art of Millinery and the inspiration around our everyday lives when creating headwear. Sherry’s Millinery journey starts from the point of being “hooked” to create hats, to delivering headpieces for the catwalk.
Friday saw the opening of our new exhibition “Three Miles from Home” featuring local watercolour artist Jane Austin. The event was opened by deputy Lord Lieutenant Chris Harris and gave invited guests an exclusive preview of the exhibition, which is centred upon the heritage and natural world found within three miles of the artists Halifax studio as well as Bankfield Museum. The exhibition is now open to the public and will be on display until 24th February.
A Hat for all Seasons – The exhibition was held at Bankfield Museum , Akroyd Park ,Boothtown Rd , Halifax HX3 6HG and ran from March through to the end of Septemebr.
This new exhibition examined the style, function, and symbolism of headwear in British society, was attended by many and was a great success. In June Sherry was pleased to give a Talk there, which explored the Art of Millinery and the inspiration around our everyday lives when creating headwear.
