I was approached recently by Castelltort to give a few classes on how to make a fascinator. Castelltort is a Spanish wholesaler that has just recently started carrying material to make fascinators (sinamay bases, sinamay by the meter, some feathers, veil and horsehair). The classes are aimed at customers (owners of shops) who want to get an idea of what can be done with the material being sold, and who are interested in selling it in their shops.
Today I gave the first class, 3 hour long , in which the ladies attending learnt to make a fascinator. They were supplied with a kit bag containing instructions, templates and the material needed to make the fascinator that I designed for the occasion. This is the table just before the class stared:
Here’s a picture of the ladies that have attended the course with their fascinators on (I’m there in the center):
It has been a very interesting experience and I’m really happy with the results, and really lucky I met such wonderful ladies!
