What you'll do

We'll use an array of feathers, flowers, lace, tulle and organza to create a beautiful headpiece perfect for a special occasion. I will help you to design and create a fascinator fit for royalty! You'll learn which colour themes work well together, and use time-tested techniques to create a stunning fascinator for yourself (or as a gift!).

We will also indulge in an afternoon tea including delicate finger sandwiches, delicious scones complete with jam and clotted cream, all served with traditional English breakfast tea.

Sarah was fabulous! I was overwhelmed by all the beautiful possibilities, and she talked me through each one patiently until I created my perfect hat. I 100% recommend this experience. It's really unique and you end up with a beautiful heirloom!

This is an awesome experience! Sarah is friendly, talented, and kind. I am not a particularly adept at making things, and she was so helpful and patient with me to make sure mine turned out the best it could. I would recommend this to anyone!

It was fun, it was creative and I left with a cute fascinator hat. Sarah invites you to her nice home up many flights in Notting Hill and makes sure you have a good time and you won't starve. Thanks Sarah for this wonderful workshop.

This was such amazing experience! Sarah was adorable and very welcoming. She helped us design and sew our fascinators and we chatted like friends the whole time. It was so much fun...and the finished product is a true momento of our time in London! Thank you!!!

Sarah is very warm, friendly and welcoming. Her place is lovely and easy to find. There is a large array of items to use to create colour, texture, and style in your headpiece. She helped us create styles unique to us, and we had such a fun time doing it! Everything was great, the scones were amazing, and I would highly recommend!
