Looking for a chic hen party idea for your style-savvy group? Get your fashion fix with a designer hat-making class. Milliner Katherine Elizabeth, whose designs are popular with Alexa Chung, Dita Von Teese and Lily Allen, runs private hen masterclasses. They take place at Katherine's London studio, a number of London hotels - and they can even bring the party to your home, anywhere in the UK.

The relaxed format makes for a fun session, and the ethically-sourced materials are included in the price - think fine antique lace, Swarovski crystals, coloured beads and feathers. Should your girlfriends' creations be sufficiently stylish, they might even want to wear their bespoke headgear on your big day.

Different packages are available. For £35 per person, you'll get a three-hour class with vintage afternoon tea. Add £10 if you want to upgrade with champagne.

Book your hen party class during March and April 2010 and receive 15 per cent off your bill. Call 07866 552818 or email katherineelizabeth_designs@yahoo.co.uk and quote 'Brides' when booking.
