Self taught artist and designer/maker Karen Van Hoff tells a funny, frank & inspiring tale of what can happen if you enter a WI competition by mistake! Karen went on to create stunning millinery from her workshop in Ludlow, Shropshire as Hardy Hall Hats. In 2003 she moved on to her next venture, Van Hoff Designs, creating exquisite wedding accessories for some of the UK's top bridal designers, including Suzanne Neville. Today she knits and embroiders with fine wire, gems and pearls to create her unique fine art, couture jewellery. Her work has sold in shops and galleries from Shropshire to Hong Kong. Karen offers a very enjoyable event. Accompanying the talk is a display of artwork: beautiful hand embroidered textiles, a gorgeous selection of jewellery and a portfolio of images.
