Time Commitment

It is suggested that you put aside  2-5 hours a side in between sessions to work on your individual business development in relation to each of the topics covered.  This is in addition to class and mentor time.

Approx timetable for each session (UK Time)

Each session presentation is between 1-2 hours depending on the session –  New Topic Lecture/Presentation including exercises and practical work.  This is recorded and means that you don’t need to attend the session live.

30 mins mentoring session in between sessions scheduled at a time to suit you

The length of time you take to complete the 10 sessions is up to you but it is suggested that between 3-6 months work well in order to keep momentum.

Individual Attention and Mentoring

Between each session you will receive 30 minutes of 1-2-1 mentoring (at a convenient time) from Jenny in relation to the weeks topic ensuring that you are getting the support you need to fulfil your individual business needs.

A follow up mentoring session will also be offered once the course has been completed to touch base with you and see how you are getting on with executing what you have learnt and help you with any specifics.


The investment in this module is £725 for the 10 sessions and mentoring programme, instruction/tuition will be recorded should you not be able to watch live or want to re watch any session for the duration of the course.

If you are unable to make the investment up front then please get in touch and a payment plan can be created

Thank you for the module, Millinery Business, 10 weeks spent online with a lovely group, working through a business course specific to millinery.  It was a roadmap with practical elements that could be implemented straight away.  The course is full of information to put into use and use straight away.  Thank you Jenny and Marie for a wonderful course.

Jenny and Marie are unequivocally generous in sharing their knowledge, skill and expertise. This has been an invaluable 10-week course teaching me the business know how and, all the tricks of the trade for me to finally take the plunge and start my millinery business. In a very safe environment, Jenny and Marie provided guidance, reassurance and support which built my confidence and encouraged amazing comradery between everyone who also attended the course, all of which have been truly inspirational. Thank you.

I think like a lot of people who see themselves as makers and creators, the business side of being a milliner was something that really worried me. However, having taken many of Jenny’s classes before and having total faith in the calm and communicative way she teaches, taking a business course run by her was an easy decision for me. At no point did I feel overwhelmed, on the contrary I felt eager and excited to learn more. I now feel confident in going forward with a business plan that I can make totally unique to me thanks to Jenny

A Testimonial to “The Business of Millinery” with Jenny Roberts

(The Rhyme of an Aged Milliner) – That was a gift from Susan!

Procrastination’s my skill, it’s Olympian level.
Making hats is my pleasure, a role that I revel.
The “Business of Millinery” was ignored; you could tell.
As the hats and hat boxes, continued to swell.

I need to sell my creations to lovers of hats
Where they naturally fit, with their habitat.
So, I signed up with Jenny, who shares many skills.
Procrastination no more, I can do this. I will.

With Goals, Values, Objectives and Marketing too
Competition and SWOT – a language I knew.
Understanding Customers and Products, I was back in my zone.
Service then Branding – it’s like being at home.

Planning, forecasting and doing the maths.
Remember – I was happy, just making my hats.
Ideas shared easily, not an ego in sight.
A millinery of hatters, seeing the light.

Social media came next, a whole new world opened.
Will we have time to create, we’ll be too busy posting,
Planning, reviewing, a website a goal.
Moving forward with speed, no longer a stroll

Support groups created, questions are posed,
Ideas, solutions are quickly proposed,
Our confidence grows, there’s belief in our craft,
This Business of Millinery course – It’s so very apt….

So, if you have pondered, questioned, considered
It just takes a call to have your answers delivered,
10 sessions isn’t long, your head may explode,
It just might be the route for your millinery road.
