Hats off to Immy!

2013 Leaver and Milliner Immy Howard is collaborating on an exciting creative project with St Helen and Katharine art students.


Immy Howard
 2013 leaver Immy Howard left Year 10 art students inspired and raring to start work on their own designs as part of a project to create wearable headpieces inspired by different cultures. 

Immy who is a bespoke milliner and still lives locallly, specialises in the craft of traditional hat making. After leaving St Helen's Immy studied Costume Design at Arts University Bournemouth. She lovingly makes individual pieces for a range of clients as well as working at the Oxford Playhouse in their costume department. She spoke to the students about her favourite creations, her work in the theatre during the busy pantomine season and how she goes about choosing the materials for each of her designs. Immy will be working alongside Mrs McDonald, Head of Art, and the students over the next term to see their projects through from initial concepts to completed creations.
