My sister gifted me a voucher for one of Virna’s classes just before the lockdown.
I contacted her in advance saying that I wanted to make a felt cocktail hat and she send me a moodboard and designed a whole class just for myself which made me feel very special. I spent a wonderful day, I learned how to sew for the first time and came home with the most adorable headpiece. I am planning to attend another of Virna’s classes and I cannot recommend her enough. She’s so passionate and knowledgeable about millinery, very patient and just a pleasure to be with. Thank you Virna!

I spent a wonderful day with Virna she is very talented and extremely passionate about her craft, her studio was very welcoming and the atmosphere was very relaxed. I learnt lots of new things at the workshop which has really helped me to improve my headdress and millinery skills. I would not hesitate to join Virna again at workshops in the future . I cannot recommend this young lady enough, she is amazing.
