Two posts in one day! I couldn’t hold on any longer. I’m very pleased to announce that I’ll be running a number “Fascinator Workshops” in the New Year, as you know I create hats and fascinators, mostly bespoke. At long last I’ll be getting my hat website off the ground, its taken a while as the last 18 months I’ve been working hard on Vintage Tea Sets my hire and event planning website, all these things are now coming together.
Be you a hen party or suppressed creative genius wanting to unleash your inner beast, join me on an exciting half day course where you’ll make your very own unique fascinator or cocktail hat for that extra special occasion and if that’s not exciting enough, afterwards we’ll celebrate with a themed scrumptious afternoon tea served on gorgeous vintage china sampling a selection of fine teas. It’s a day of pure girlie indulgence. The workshop caters for all abilities, so whether you’ve never so much as threaded a needle in your life or if you’re sewing mad, we can accommodate you. Day workshops can be arranged and for those of you wanting to learn more that millinery has to offer I offer one to one hat making courses.
For group bookings choose from a variety of workshop themes and packages that encompass a treasure trove of decorative items such as vintage brooches, fresh water pearls, beads, lace, Swarovski crystals, feathers, satin and velvet……
Please note: workshops require a minimum of four people, larger groups can be accommodated by arrangement…….with bookings over 8 the hostess/party organiser goes free. My workshops are run in a variety of locations throughout Bristol however I can travel by arrangement, please contact me for further details and to request a booking form firstname.lastname@example.org Prices start from only £40 per person on our most basic packages including materials for your own unique creation and refreshments served in vintage china through out the day.
