Ellie Vallerini is a London based Milliner. After completing her
BA in Contemporary Crafts Ellie moved to London to pursue her love
of hat making. She learnt practical skills from several short
courses, whilst developing her own creative style through self
practice. She has been Senior Designer and Milliner at John Boyd
Hats for five years.
In my teaching I aim to inspire students to discover their own unique creativity and learn the skills needed to achieve their full potential.
My inspiration comes from many sources including art, fashion, architecture and nature. I love using bold colours and sculptural shapes to create unique and elegant designs.
