Daytime

Are you a hat lover, and would you like to learn how to make your own hat? This one-day course will enable you to create your own fabulous fascinator hat and leave with the skills to carry on creating more. You’ll learn how to make a fascinator base, manipulate sinamay straw, use wire, work with veiling and learn traditional millinery stitches.

The class will take place in Elena's cozy studio in South London. The class will begin with a short introduction to hat making, different hat styles, trimmings, and materials. Then you will learn how to make the base of a hat using a traditional hat block, and how to wire and trim the edges. This will be followed with a short tea or coffee break.

This class will resume with learning the different techniques of trimming and decorating, including sinamay straw rolling, veiling, embellishment, and much more.

By the end of the session you will gain invaluable millinery skills and you'll leave with a beautiful finished hat that you made yourself. All materials are included, so there's no need to bring anything. The workshop will last about 3,5 hours.

This was my first ever millinery course and with a love of hats, I had always wanted to make my own headwear. This course was excellent value, and Elena was an absolutely fantastic teacher. I had a lovely day with Elena in her London studio, and was so pleased to be able to make my own fascinator with guidance in just a few hours. Elena was incredibly patient and knowledgeable, showing me different techniques and guiding me through the steps. I really enjoyed Elena's company and will definitely go back to see her for more classes!

Had a fantastic afternoon with Elena. She has so much knowledge and goes above and beyond to make you feel comfortable and welcome. Her selection of biscuits are A+ as well. I think I am now addicted to hat making and hope to be back soon!
