Elena Shvab Milllinery's best selling "Create a Fascinator Hat" is now available live online.
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, create trimmings and decorations.
