This session is "B Unique with Sinamy Blocking - The Neil Grigg Way"

Neil started making hats for theatre productions in the mid 1970’s while at Uni and gradually increased his knowledge working with both Betty Viazim (theatre) and Jenifer Nairn (fashion) …..  as well as a stint at Opera Australia …. and the good old trial and error approach in these early stages.

With over 40 yrs working in Millinery - Neil has seen many fashion changes and dressed everyone from Crown Princess Mary of Denmark to our own Queen of the track , Gay Waterhouse.

David Jones carried his label for over 20 yrs and many boutiques all across Australia have carried his hats and headpieces over the years.

In this online, interactive, live training....

  • Where do we start, where do we go ….and why ?
  • You will learn to make a blocking cord and understand when and when not to use it.
  • Cutting and positioning  sinnamay from the roll and  on the blocks
  • Learning the tricks of blocking both the crown and brim  which are made separately .
  • Wiring the brim, and sewing in the headband
  • Creating a sinamay edge and sewing it on

 ... a couple of trim options for the finish if we have time
