Glam Hatters' Hen Parties

Have you got a hen party to plan or want to a fun way to spend the afternoon with friends? Why not consider a group hat making course with tea and cakes to fuel your ideas.

In December 2011, I went with my mum to the East London Design Show and one of the items she bought was a fascinator kit from Janie Lawson's stand. You can read all about the show and my other favourite designers on my previous post. Janie's work features at number 5 on the list.

As well as designing bespoke hats, facinators and selling kits to make your own, Janie runs afternoon courses with groups in mind. Here is a bit more information:

The Glam Hatters' fascinator workshops are pure fun and a brilliant hen party idea. Designed by Janie Lawson a professional milliner and taught by her highly skilled and fabulously fun Glam Hatters' teachers. Choose from a dressing up box of gorgeous feathers, veiling and trimmings, you will come away with a beautiful fascinator to wear to the wedding.

The hen parties are held in Janie's London studio or a venue of your choice. The London studio is a four minute walk from Clapham North tube, a genuine millinery studio full of hats and materials to inspire you. Housed in a bohemian chic art studio, the faded grandeur of this Victorian building will charm you.

Janie's Glam Hatters' girls also travel nation wide bringing the Glam Hatters' hen parties to a location of your choice. They will arrive half an hour before the party to re-create the Glam Hatters' style. A one off £30 travel fee is charged for parties outside the studio.
