Originally from Australia, Milliner Lina Stein has been based in Westport, Ireland for many years. For more than two decades 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.
Through the innovative Master classes that take place in her “bijou” studio, 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.
Living on the western periphery of Europe has been a major source of inspiration,which has led Lina to develop new and varied methods of working with traditional and modern materials.
