Where: Milliner Warehouse
What: Fascinator Lover Course
by Terry - October 2014
I had a wonderful time learning how to make a fascinator with Toyin and her assistant Mercy. In fact we ran over time but were under no pressure to hurry up and finish. My daughter had given me a voucher for the course, as a birthday present, and also one for her sister and herself. I thought it such a novel idea that I then purchased a 'Fascinator Lover Workshop' voucher for my best friend's birthday a couple of weeks later. We were welcomed into the shop and taken down to the workshop in the basement, an Aladdin's cave of fabrics, feathers and flowers. Toyin demonstrated some techniques to us, using different millinery fabrics, how to work them and examples of arranging the worked fabrics into bows, twirls, loops, etc. we did feather cutting, ruched netting. All four of us used different techniques and the finished results were an example of the diversity of styles that can be achieved. We were left to fiddle around with materials, use our imagination and yet Toyin and Mercy were there offering advice and assistance whenever needed, making sure we ended up with very professional fascinators. A welcome cup of tea and coffee was offered part way through. We took lots of photos of processes and techniques and of course our final productions. We are all very pleased with our fascinators and feel inspired to have a go at making more. The shop is crammed full with all the materials you would need to make your own and having done the workshop you would feel confident at making your own masterpiece at home. I would thoroughly recommend the Fascinator Lover Workshop and even if you feel you are not really into crafting you will be very pleasantly surprised at the results you will achieve on this course. Plus you get to take your own hand-made fascinator home, now we just need a special occasion to wear them!
