About Us

 

Woody and Blue was established by artist Haroun Ray, with an academic background in both mixed media arts and architecture.

I was looking for a new direction in my career, where I could draw on my academic background but also get close to my materials in a time-established craft and chose millinery as the one.

So in 2013 after an amazing introduction from master milliner Karen Shanon and a full year under her studying contemporary millinery there followed a brilliant second year with master milliner Sarah Lomax and I had found my profession.

I stick to old school couture techniques with lots of needle and thread  to create unique hats for the occasion.

I’m based in London and I have a spot in Jubilee Market, Covent Garden where customers can visit me and try my creations.

And this is me Haroun Ray the one man band and mind behind every hat I make, you don’t buy just a hat, you buy my unique creativity which is like an erupting volcano keep flowing…. keep changing…. keep moving…. keep evolving

 

Peace and love
