BORDER fashionistas will be taking their hats off to a Yarrawonga milliner holding a fascinator making workshop just in time for the Albury Gold Cup.

Milliner Rachael Hart will show participants how to design and construct their very own silk flower headpiece using traditional millinery technology.

“It’s a really great opportunity for those who want to pursue millinery in the future,” she said.

“It’s not just craft but a useful skill and they’ll be able to wear what they make to the Albury Gold Cup.”

The workshop is on at 10am to 3.30pm on Saturday, March 8 at Albury’s Library Museum.

Ms Hart said it was perfect timing as her hats are on display at the venue, along with the 1888 Melbourne Cup.

It costs $120 and includes all materials. Call (02) 6023 8333 for bookings.
