About your tutors

Sue Carter and Marie Thornton teamed up to teach at Hat Works 4 years ago. They have used their combined knowledge to support over 200 people through their millinery journey at the museum.

Marie studied HNC millinery at Leeds College of Art and Sue studied City and Guilds Millinery in Huddersfield. They both taught millinery short courses at Leeds College of Art.
