Fascinators are stylish headpieces that can be simple or extravagant.
In our workshop, you'll receive:
- One fascinator base
- Choice of headband or clip(s)
- Unfettered access to Zeezo's phenomenal collection of feathers, faux flowers & vines, rhinestones, retired vintage jewelry & findings, shells, game pieces, googly eyes, tassels, new and vintage lace, ribbons, tulle, steampunk accessories, pearls, chains and beads.
- Glue, glue guns and other tools to firmly adhere decorations to your fascinator base
- Personalized instruction regarding design, structure and comfort for your particular style of headpiece
Upon your arrival, you'll meet our instructor and view our classroom.
The classroom is organized in such a way that feathers (chandelle, coque, peacock, pheasant, etc.) are organized by color. Faux flowers, leaves and vines are separated by warm and cool colors. Items such as tassels, ribbons, lace, appliques, game pieces, mermaid accessories, steampunk gear, and jewels & rhinestones are organized by the item.
After choosing your fascinator base, you'll choose whether you'd like to use a headband, or clips in order to secure your headpiece to your head.
You'll then be instructed to "shop" our sparkly and feathery elements and gather together the bits that you might use for your fascinator. Decorative bits can be switched out, or changed entirely, at any time during your class.
Each class participant has a work station that includes a foam head to hold your headpiece as you work, personal glue and glue gun, plastic bin to hold your decorative bits, and use of communal zip ties, scissors, pliers, and wire cutters.
Our instructor will help you as much as you need, or want, in order to lay out your fascinator design. We'll give you tips on how to securely fasten items and how to structure your fascinator for comfort and a pleasing appearance.
The class is over when you are finished (usually about 1.5 to 2 hours).
Class sizes are very small. While this class could certainly be completed by children, we recommend attendance by only those who are aged 12 and up.
