how to make a fascinator

The fine folks at Course Horse sent me to a feather fascinator course at Artikal this week. I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect, but the teacher was patient and friendly and we got to work out of her amazing studio in the East Village (photos below). Making a fascinator wasn’t as technical as I thought it would be, but they sure take a lot of time!

Holly from Artikal was a pleasure to learn from and incredibly talented at making fascinators, hats and cage veils. Taking the class was a total blast. It’s super easy to sign up on Course Horse and she teaches other fun millinery related courses here.

The studio was jam-packed with feathers, hats, thread and other supplies.

I can’t wait to sign up for another class from Course Horse. They have everything from photography, to food making/tasting, to wine, and crafting classes. If you have some free time I would strongly recommend trying something new with Course Horse. It was so fun to go alone and meet people, but it would also be fantastic to go to one with a group of friends.
