Practice: Couture Hat Making
Location: Thomastown, County Kilkenny

Overview
Mentor Linda McKay gave a six day master class in bespoke hat making to Antoinette O'Mahony, a busy mum of two who's ambition is to further develop a home business making hats and to Claire Hurley a graduate of Limerick College of Art and Design who is based in Kinsale and working as a fashion designer, up-cycling fabrics into one-off garments that cannot be found on the main street and to wedding hair stylist of the year, Pat O'Neill.
