25th April 2015 marks the 100 year anniversary of Anzac Day.
To honour this history, we will be constructing a handmade red silk Remembrance Poppy that can be worn as either a brooch or hair accessory.

ABOUT JENEPHER WALKER
I am a trained milliner and hold a Certificate IV with Distinction from Ultimo TAFE. It was in this course that I was first exposed to French Flower Making. I extended my knowledge with a private lesson from another milliner and classes at the International Millinery Forum where I learnt how to work in leather. I have made bridal pieces that have incorporated delicate handmade silk flowers using many different techniques.
Take a look at some of my work on Facebook @Jenepher Walker Millinery or in store at Work-shop Makery.
