Millinery Retreat

A Milliners’ life can be very lonely as it is an art and craft that is very personal and something we do on our own.

Why not have a week-end away on the Hinterland of Queensland’s Sunshine Coast at the Studio / Showroom of B Unique Millinery to rejuvenate and get motivated in your chosen role as a milliner which can be rewarding and fulfilling in many ways.

Stay on the property in your own room, all meals included and enjoy 2 full days of hatting.  Learn about all different millinery fabrics, from sinamay, pinokpok, buckram, paper and try blocking many of them.  Block as many hats and bases as you like to take back home – block collection of around 100 with many new ones being added all the time, some vintage and others from different block-makers around the world.  Gain new tips and techniques that you can use immediately.  Browse through the multitude of supplies and get inspiration to take your business to that next level.

This was a great introduction into millinery for me, but it would be equally suitable for someone more experienced. Great setting and lovely host.

Millinery Retreat

What a superb weekend I had at the B Unique Millinery Retreat. Such a creative experience in a beautiful setting and lots and lots of millinery resources on tap from Brenda's well stocked Shop and work space. The food was delicious and felt hugely pampered by quality accommodation. I would recommend this Retreat to all Millinery levels from beginner to advanced, always something new to learn. Thank you for sharing the love of millinery and creativity.

Weekend retreat surpassed all my expectations

The weekend retreat was fantastic ! As a beginner, I learnt so much , and Brenda was a great teacher. She was very accomodating, patient and helpful. It was great value for money, as it included accommodation, all meals (cooked by Brenda), use of warehouse supplies, and very personalised tuition. I made a few hats (that l love!) , and I highly recommend it .
