Hats And Dreams. Jo Miller:


Jo is not only a truly inspirational designer, but a true inspiration herself.
She is proof that you can follow your dreams if you really want to.
(First two images taken from the 2021 Visual Arts Centre display).
Jo is one of Scunthorpe's finest and in 2011 she packed her bags for the bright lights of London.
And what a success story she has been!
'The Bones Of Me' is a fascinating exhibition of Jo's millinery designs, her use of unusual materials and techniques are incredible.
Quilted Hat.
Resin Turban.
Over Sized Beanie with Large Pom.
Battered Beanie.
Bag Bow.
Hat In A Bag.
I love looking in sketchbooks, so it was a real treat to see Jo's thought processes and her sample experiments were fascinating.
If you get the chance to visit I highly recommend this little gem of an exhibition.
Congratulations Jo Miller!

I'd love to hear your thoughts, just a minute and I'll put the kettle on.
