If you’re asking the question ‘how to make a feather fascinator’, then you’ve come to the right place. This is one of our best-selling books, (now available as a paperback or an eBook, and it’s now revised and updated to include a much more in-depth section on creating a cocktail base for your feather fascinator, as well as a new section on adding veiling). When you look at the beautiful fascinator hats on the cover and in the inspiration section at the back of the book, you can hardly believe that these fascinators can be made at home using easily obtainable materials! In Fantastic Feathers we describe lots of techniques for working with feathers including dyeing, ‘burning’, curling, knotting and making ‘poms’. And then we show you how to make a range of different kinds of mounts. And finally we show you lots of examples of fascinators others have made, as inspiration for your own creation. We don’t show you how to make just one particular type of fascinator as we feel that would be too limiting – instead we show you lots of basic techniques to enable you to make any number of different fascinators. Combined with the photographs of fascinators others have made, this is a winning combination.

No special equipment is required for making the fascinators shown in this book – just lots of things you probably already have around the home but would probably never have thought of using.
