* How did Glam Hatters begin?
The *Glam Hatters’ Tea Parties* were created in April 2008. These fabulous hat making hen parties and craft workshops were originally dreamt up as an add on to my millinery business which was established in August 2000. They have quickly taken over and now when asked what I “do”. I say, I run hat making hen parties – hats, girls, parties, what’s not to love?! Who could dream up a job like this?!!!
I originally studied fashion design at Central Saint Martin’s School of Art, and went on to study millinery at Kensington & Chelsea College and Morley College in London.
I have exhibited on numerous occasions at London and Paris Fashion Week, The Designer Wedding Show, The National Wedding Show and countless trade shows. I’m very lucky to have my millinery regularly featured in fashion and wedding magazines such as Marie Claire, Red, Vogue, Elle, You, The Telegraph, Glamour, You & Your Wedding, Cosmopolitan Bride and Your London Wedding. My Glam Hatters Hen Parties were also recently featured on Rock My Wedding and my video tutorials on Molly Makes.
* Where do you get your inspiration from?
I love my work and have made it my mission to bring fun, fascinators and vintage afternoon teas to as many gorgeous hen parties as I possibly can.
* What can Glam Hatters offer to brides and hens?
Glam Hatters provide everything you need, millinery bases, beading, netting and tulle, ensuring you will make a fabulous fascinator with a gorgeous vintage look. Our Glam Hatter Girls are experts in their field and we are unrivalled in our quest to help you achieve a beautiful headpiece, but rest assured the workshop is suitable for all levels of experience and we will make this happen whilst having a lot of fun, a lot of chatting and a lot of bubbles and afternoon tea along the way.

*Great Gatsby Accessory Hen Party Workshop*
3 hour Great Gatsby Accessory hen party workshop £50 pp
This is a three-hour headpiece or necklace workshop with a break for vintage afternoon tea. A fun and glamorous workshop, suitable for absolute beginners.
Make a beautiful vintage headpiece or necklace inspired by The Great Gatsby. Choose from a jewellery box of pearls, Swarovski crystals, colourful beads, vintage style buttons, millinery materials, ribbons, ostrich feathers and precious beads from around the world. If you are not a headpiece kind of girl, follow the current trend and instead create a statement piece of jewellery using our gorgeous ribbon necklaces. We will help you create a beautiful vintage inspired piece step-by-step, with patience, fun and laughter! Bring your wedding outfit or fabric swatches with you and The Glam Hatters will help you create something sublime to wear to the wedding.
This workshop is suitable for all levels, even if you have never picked up a needle in your life! All materials and tools are included, so you don’t need to bring anything with you – unless you have a special something that you would like to include, for example a vintage brooch your Nana left you or a necklace “borrowed” from your Mum!
As afternoon tea is not included in this package you are very welcome to bring your own bubbly, nibbles and cakes. (Providing it is cool with your choice of venue – please see our location information.) We will plate them for you using our lovely vintage china tea sets, cake stands, and bubbly flutes. *Vintage china only available in London and subject to availability :-).
Or we can also organise the afternoon tea for you. Our Glam Hatters’ Vintage Afternoon Tea is £11.50 pp. You’ll enjoy a delicious selection of finger sandwiches and cakes – all served with a lovely cup of tea (what else!) and plated beautifully on our vintage china and tea sets.
We also travel nationwide bringing the Glam Hatters’ hen parties to a location of your choice.
