The Art of Millinery - Headwear by Karen Shannon

Date: 1 October 2014 to 11 October 2014
Opening Times: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday 11am -6pm; Wednesday & Friday 11am–4pm; Closed Sunday
Location: The Gallery, 33-35 St John's Square, London EC1M 4DS

From 1-11 October a collection of unique hats and headpieces designed and constructed by Karen Shannon will be presented in The Gallery at Craft Central.

Karen's career as a milliner started over 25 years ago when she took a part time millinery course after completing her degree in jewellery and metalwork . Over quarter of a decade later and Karen has worked with notable experts in the field including Stephen Jones and the late Freddie Fox and used her flair for drama and fashion producing headwear for films including Star Wars The Phantom Menace , Master and Commander and the hit musical Wicked (amongst many others).

Organic, head-turning and original, each piece has been made by hand using a combination of both traditional and unusual materials, forming striking accessories that represent the art form of millinery at its best. From leather, natural fibres and feathers to recycled glossies ensuring the collection is as varied and interesting as it is cleverly fashioned.

Karen comments 'The exhibition is a summary of my creative path inspired by my professional work as a theatrical milliner'.

These intimate studies constructed from layers of silk organza and hand stitch, examine the relationships between parents and their children, the joys and the frustrations.

Also on show a series of hand embroidered drawings of sticks in Jam Jars. Gibbs’ strong sense of colour and proportion, and the subtle way she uses tiny coloured stitches, bring to life her delicate sketches. Inspired by nature tables that give gravitas and reference to collections of knobbly sticks, grass and other natural treasures,
