Learn how to make your own gorgeous fascinator in this Virtual hat and Chat workshop hosted via Zoom.
This is a beginner level workshop, no prior experience necessary.
Join Kentucky Derby fascinator professional Lisa Shaub for our one hour Virtual Hat and Chat class where we create fascinators from materials we have at home. You can make yours big or small, over-the-top unique, and paparazzi flashbulb worthy.
We end the class with a virtual cocktail party, wearing our new fascinators while we have a drink together. Grab some friends online, and fire up your imagination!
