Originally, from Australia, Milliner Lina Stein has been based in Westport, Ireland.
For more than twenty-five years, she has been creating amazing hats and is recognized as a leading light in the international world of Millinery. Through the flamboyant and extravagant creations, her presence signals an explosive dynamic that is diverse and exposes her to new experiences, people and places.
Living on the western periphery of Europe has also been a major source of inspiration, which has led Lina to develop new and varied methods of working with traditional and modern materials.
In 2007, she decided that the time was right to open the door on the world of Hat Making and share her knowledge about the traditional art of Millinery with “hat-enthusiasts” from the world over.
Through the innovative Workshops that take place in her “bijou” studio just outside Westport, she has inspired countless novice Milliners from both Ireland and abroad to take up the thimble, needle & thread and to try their hand at something new, exciting and inspirational whilst enjoying every moment.
Her Masterclasses and Millinery Summer Schools encourage the participants to open their minds, collaborate, connect, and create Millinery magic. The most innovative teaching methods take elements of the everyday and banal and turn them into the most beautiful of creations. Lina Stein's successful teaching techniques, give her students the confidence to set up small enterprises, participate in International Millinery Competitions or simply strut their stuff at the races.
Lina has taken her Millinery skills around the world including Australia, USA, Germany, Spain.
She has worked with leading hat making connections from around the globe and established Ireland's premiere millinery educational event.
