Milliner heads for royal heights

4th November 2005 at 00:00
It's hats off to milliner Jane Fryers who is brimming with pride after landing a royal scholarship which will enable her to take courses at Kensington and Chelsea college.

Jane, 42, won the pound;3,200 Queen Elizabeth scholarship which is designed to advance education in modern and traditional crafts and trades in Britain.

The award means she can attend the college and be taught by expert Kirsten Scott, as well as have a tailor-made course with Rose Cory, the late Queen Mother's hat maker.

Jane has worked for BBC Television for seven years and makes hats for private commissions. She often uses recycled materials.

She said: "The benefits of a traditional training with Rose Cory will be innumerable.

"Perfection is really important when working with recycled materials.

"At Kensington and Chelsea I hope to learn to design my own blocks, as well as taking a course on studying the market."
