Description

Long have the ladies of Stilettos been a fan of the fabulous Bobbi Heath at Chic Chapeau, who has furnished the crowns of many of us for Royal Ascot in recent years. At long last, the great lady herself has agreed to host a privileged group of us to share the secrets of her expertise and teach us the art of hat-making.

In the prelude to Cheltenham Ladies day (think country casuals) and the run-up to wedding season, you will be able to make your own felt hat (weather-appropriate for late winter and early spring).

All about Chic Chapeau...

Chic Chapeau is the label created by the renowned milliner Bobbi Heath, and is run from her Worcestershire Countryside workshop just a few miles from Worcester's city centre.

Bobbiʼs passion for hats began from the age of thirteen when she made a tartan jockey cap, cut to the pattern of her brother's school cap. The only place she could wear it was going to church. How else could a young, potential milliner, be noticed? Now a great many years later, she is designing and making hats for discerning clients.

The milliners' repertoire ranges from show-stopping occasion headwear, to fascinators or simple hats that can be worn everyday. Chic Chapeau allows individuals to have a unique hat created just for them. Bobbi prides herself in ensuring her headpieces always suit the wearer and the expertise of the milliner means that they are secure enough to wear all day unnoticed - if it wasn't for the compliments, that is!

Besides all the grand events such as Royal Ascot, the hats for Chic Chapeau have been showcased in Catwalk Shows, theatre productions, weddings, special occasions and Bobbi even designed the amazing "Mad Hatter" top hat for this year's Pirelli calendar.

What will happen on the day of the workshop?

The day will start at 10am, when Bobbi will advise attendees on hat style, taking into consideration event-type, what sort of hat will suit the wearer, and what it will be worn with (if the hat comes first, then suggestions on what it would look best with are always available).

For the rest of the day, you will be guided through the production of your own glamorous hat under the watchful eye of the master milliner herself.

Bobbi has suggested that given the time of year and our unreliable weather, that a felt-based hat would be most appropriate. The colour and decoration are entirely up to you. If you have your own embellishments or pieces of jewellery you would like to incorporate, then you are welcome to bring them along too. Similarly, if you want to make sure that there is material available to match a particular colour, then we will provide details for you to contact Bobbi before the day and she will source this for you.

The ticket price not only includes the tuition but also a light lunch and tea/coffee. Materials used in the production of your headwear are at additional cost, although we are assured that even the most ornate hat would not cost more than £20.

The day will end at around 4pm, although this is not set in stone if your hat is not quite finished.

Getting there

Just a few minutes from the M5, the Chic Chapeau studio is easily reached from Gloucestershire, Warwickshire, the West Midlands, Staffordshire and the East Midlands.

For those who aren't driving, team Stilettos will be in touch prior to the event and can arrange collection from the local train station or Birmingham.
