Hats off to Awon Golding – and to you, too!
Feeling crafty? Hong Kong-born milliner (that’s a hat designer, for those who aren’t familiar with the term) and our former That Girl, Awon Golding is returning home from London to host a series of workshops that will let you in on some hat-tricks. In a three-hour workshop, you can learn how to make beautiful personalised veils, donned with Swarovski crystals, pearls, studs and feathers — a sophisticated addition to any festive holiday outfit.

All materials will be provided and no experience is necessary.
What’s even better is Sassy is hooking you up with not one, but TWO, amazing offers. There will be a special 10% discount on tickets for the workshops for all Sassy readers!
