What you'll do

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. We will meet in my cozy studio in South London. We'll start 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. Then you will learn 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 three hours.
