Where – Ellie’s home in Toowong Brisbane

Join me at my home with international milliner Charlotte Lyn Holyoak for 6 hours of fun and creativity.

Charlotte Lynn Holyoak has been an international Milliner/Teacher/Designer for 29 years, working in Australia, Japan, U.K., and U.A.E. Charlotte won the title of ‘Official Milliner’ to The Dubai World Cup ( the richest horserace in the world) and continued to work in that area for 10 years. Her designs won the coveted ‘Fashions in The Field’ awards for both ‘Best Dressed Woman’ and ‘Best Dressed Couple’. Charlotte’s No. 1 passion has always been to teach. To date, she has had over 1000 hat and bag making students and raffia is her absolute favourite raw material.

This bag is extremely easy to make and requires no previous sewing or plaiting experience. This class is limited to a maximum of 10 students, allowing for lots of one on one tuition plus giggles and chatter. When your girlfriends ask you where you bought your bag, you’ll have the priceless pleasure and pride of saying ” I made it!”

Enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of sitting out on the back deck at my Toowong home where we can chat, sip champagne, enjoy a gourmet lunch and create something beautiful!

What you’ll get:

  • 300 grams of Natural Raffia
  • Leather Handles
  • All beautifully presented in your own colourful print zip bag

We shall send an email to you a few days before your class which will act as a reminder.
