What you will do
6 hour workshop
You’ll learn how to create a fascinator base on a comb or hairband and be introduced to traditional millinery stitches which will enable you to carry on creating at home. You will also explore different methods and materials to trim and decorate your work - from learning how to make sculptural sinamay twists and use fanciful feathers, to adding instant glamour with veiling.
***The image shown is an indication of the type of Fascinator which you will create, but please note it will vary in design.
We ensure quality. If your class doesn't reach your expectations, we'll give your money back.
