Pick, mix and make a fascinator - Bonnefirebox 09 May

The raw material - sinamay


Have you ever looked at a fascinator in a shop and thought I quite like this, but fancy it in a different colour?
Or perhaps you’ve wanted to take an element from one piece, and add it to another?
Or perhaps you’ve just wondered ‘how do they make that’?

If any of those strike a chord with you, why not come and learn how to mix and match and make your own fascinator?

When you arrive there will be an assortment of fascinators in a variety of colours and shapes for you to try on to find out what you like. All of them will have been made using the techniques you will be learning, so you can find out what works for you.

Over the course of 2 ½ hours you will learn three different techniques, a twist, a curl and a flower.

Then, it’s over to you to decide how you want to mix and match them to make your own fascinator.

I did do the maths to work out how many permutations there were of mixing and matching two elements in different colours. Let’s just say the possibilities are endless.

Places are limited to 8 people, so do book now.

Basic sewing skills are required, but if you might struggle, don’t worry, I’ll help!

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

All materials
And as The Mad Hatter from Alice said ‘It’s always tea time’ so we will definitely have tea and some of Bonnefirebox's delicious cake!
