Author Bio: Judy Bentinck

Judy Bentinck is a practising traditional couture milliner, making contemporary hats that are both wearable and flattering. She also teaches millinery at Central St Martins in London, and runs her own courses from her central London studio. Judy studied printed textile design at Liverpool John Moores University, before spending several years designing and making theatre and film costumes for the BBC and the Royal Opera House. She made her first hat while teaching costume design at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. Trained by Rose Cory, royal warrant holder and world-renowned teacher, Judy passes on her passion for millinery showing the popular traditional techniques that make handmade hats not things of beauty, but works of art.
