We’ve all been coo-ing over Kate Middleton’s hatinators and fascinators for the past few years, and then realise that we can’t actually afford to buy them.  Fear not – why not make your own!

What are hatinators? Well, hatinators are that lovely in between style of hat/fascinator for those who don’t want an enormous hat for an event, but want a bit more than a small fascinator.  They are usually a fairly structured design and can be as simple or extravagant as you like.  They come in all sorts of shapes, sizes and colours and can involve a wide variety of materials including sinamay, feathers, flowers and veiling to name just a few of the items that we bring along to our classes.  No matter what style of hatinator you go for, the benefit of them is that they can make a very sophisticated statement without being over the top.  Their popularity has been increasing more and more over the last few years as is evidenced by the number of celebrities and Royals who choose to wear a hatinator at events.  Of course some events such as Royal Ascot have particular rules and regulations as to what can and cannot be worn on your head, so please make sure that you let us know in advance if you are making you piece to wear to a particular event so that we can check that your creation will comply with the rules!

By booking onto one of our classes you can make a fabulous hatinator of your own.  Choose from one of our many styles, let us know what colours your like so that we can ensure you can make a piece to go with your favourite outfit and then let us teach you how to create your hatinator.  Whether you’re going to wear it to a wedding, the races, a garden party, a black tie event or another special occasion, a hatinator will be sure to finish off our outfit perfectly.
