Judy Bentinck has been teaching millinery skills at Central St Martin’s UAL short courses since 2007 and also runs a variety of courses from her Central London Studio.
A founder member and Director of The British Hat Guild, Judy is a leading British milliner with 21 years experience.
Judy is passionate about her craft and loves to pass this passion and her expertise on. She believes that in-person classes are the best way to learn millinery the couture way.
These courses are always small in number, ensuring plenty of personal attention. You will learn traditional millinery techniques surrounded by the tutor's own inspiring work.
Judy Bentinck has judged the International HATTALK competition 2 years running, and has also demonstrated at the Victoria and Albert Museum, The British Museum and The Museum of London. Many of Judy’s students have gone on to work in the industry or become successful milliners.
Judy's book “Designing and Making Hats and Headpieces”, published in 2014, is an excellent accompaniment to her courses and can be purchased at Amazon or from Judy directly.
