Mint Juleps & Fascinators: It’s Derby Time!

  • April 27, 2014 · 1:00 PM

In honor of the upcoming Kentucky Derby, let’s drink mint juleps and learn how to make fascinators (the cute little hat that sticks to the side of your head)!

Local milliner Melissa Glim of L’Abeille Rusé Designs will present a workshop on crafting a beautiful fascinator using traditional millinery materials and methods.

You’ll learn:

•  Techniques to create attractive and one-of-a-kind decorations using feathers, flowers, veiling, and other materials.

•  How to put it all together into a wearable piece that suits you perfectly.

•  A bit about hats and racewear traditions.

**Mint Juleps will be served!**

    I got my materials! I ordered mine from I got a fascinator base, flower, and feathers. This week is the last week to let our instructor know if you want her to order materials for you ($20), otherwise you will want to order your own supplies this week so it arrives in time.
