Summer Sunday Meet the Maker Milliner Wendy Knight

July 28, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

We have another fabulous Summer Sunday lined up for you. Pop in and meet Milliner Wendy Knight. Enjoy stylish hats. Try them on! See what suits you best! Get some fashion advice from an expert.
Wendy will be here in the Leitrim Design House with a stunning selection of one off summer hats and will be showcasing mixed media pieces which were created during an exciting collaboration with blacksmith Colum Bagnall from Bushy Park Ironworks- pieces that defy gravity through balanced design. Wendy also will introduce her fabulous new casual collection of eco jersey headbands and a super soft funky baby range …

Wendy works from her studio just outside Newtownforbes in Longford. Her designs range from theatrical large brimmed showstoppers, in a range of fabrics embellished with beads and veiling, to more subtle cloches and pillboxes.
She studied at reading College of Art & Design and the Grafton Academy and has built a loyal customer base by designing and handcrafting one off bespoke millinery pieces using traditional skills passed down from her grandparents who owned a millinery factory in Luton. She also exhibits collections at several high profile trade fairs in Ireland and in the U.K.
Enjoy a fabulous Summer Sunday with Wendy, have a coffee and relax and enjoy some poetry readings with Joseph Woods in The Dock Arts Centre
