Got a DIY lovin' bride? Get her down to the Manchester Fascinator Makingexperience on her hen weekend! This city totally owned hat making in Britain in the 19th century. Dip your toe into the magical world of millinery! This workshop will see your group create unique fascinators using surprisingly simple techniques and crafty tricks.
A trained craftswoman will give everyone a fascinator template and show you all how to build on it with fabric swatches, followed by pretty and flamboyant embellishments like feathers, bows, flowers, jewels, net and pearls. Make it simple and sophisticated or go to town and create a theatrical showstopper!
Got a mixed group of girls who don't all know each other? If you have different friends and a few relatives coming on the hen do, fascinator making will soon break the ice. Chat and craft go together like hats and gloves.
Make, decorate and then take your fascinators out on the town! Do the bohemian Northern Quarter or go upmarket and check out the champagne bars of Spinningfields.
