The British School of Millinery

The British School of Millinery is based in Cheltenham, UK and managed by creative director and talented milliner Denise Innes-Spencer.

We are proud of our 100% positive feedback from students. All courses at The British School of Millinery are kept small to give you individual support. All courses include clear step-by-step instructions to complement the teaching which are yours to take away. Check out our courses for further information. 

Denise Innes-Spencer's book on Tiara Headdresses was published in June 2017. This book takes you from the question of which wires to use all the way to constructing bases and advanced decorative techniques. With detailed, illustrated instructions on many different projects, you'll learn to use wires, knitted wires, beads, diamante and more. It is perfect for budding milliners, crafters, jewellers and brides-to-be.

Denise is an engaging speaker and lecturer who is available for talks, presentations, masterclasses and lectures to a wide range of audiences. Denise is also available to make hats for film, television and theatre.

A selection of tiaras from Denise Innes-Spencer's collection are also available for sale.

All pictures on this site are of millinery pieces made either by Denise or former students of The British School of Millinery.


Denise Innes-Spencer's Tiara Headdresses book is now available from here and amazon.co.uk.
