About the Course

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. We'll take a short tea or coffee break. 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.

Thank you Elena for this brilliant fascinator workshop. I learnt so many new skills that will allow me to continue creating and make more beautiful hats. This one day workshop is great for those who is a beginner and those with some experience. Elena is a wonderful teacher who pays attention to details and knows exactly what you want to learn and practice.
Will definitely recommend this course. Also during the class I had an opportunity to try on Elena's hats that are presented in the studio. Trully great experience!

This was a unique wonderful experience! Elena was warm and welcoming and encouraged us to experiment with materials. We talked a great deal about different hats, how they are made and for what occasion. We tried on all the hats available at the studio :)
And all in the process of making a fabulous hat, it's actually easy with such a wonderful guidance.
I can't wait for occasion to wear my new hat!
