Floating Feather Fascinators Workshop

Workshop participants learned how to make an easy-to-wear fascinator and be part of a discussion on the history of hat making and how it helped give women career options, like Juanita J. Craft. 

Craft was the first African American woman to vote in Dallas County in a public election and used millinery to support her activism. Instructor Cassie MacGregor from The House of MacGregor walked through the construction of feather flowers on a vine using glue, wire, and wooden beads. The workshop concluded with nice music, floral tea with sweet biscuits, and a fun photo op.

This class was part of SDCC’s New Years, New Skills creative workshop series.
