Me and my mum attended one of Rachel’s Fascinator workshop, and it was amazing! Rachel’s knowledge, skill, creativity and patience is second to none. First half of the day was learning lots of different techniques and the afternoon creating our fascinators!
There was such a great array of material and choice and Rachel was extremely helpful with everything.
Highly recommend and a huge thank you for such a lovely day x

I just loved this workshop. It was relaxed but we still learned so much. Rachel was friendly, knowledgeable, patient and full of ideas and suggestions. She obviously loves what she does, and we all got caught up in that. The day flew by, I just loved it. I would highly recommend this - and all of Rachel's workshops, and I will definitely be going to more of them.

I thoroughly enjoyed my day at Warrillow Studios. In the well equipped workshop, bursting with inspiration from Rachel’s masterpieces on display, I learnt numerous techniques, which I used to create my own fascinator. Rachel was friendly and knowledgeable and I left with all the information and skills needed to continue to make my own creations at home.

We all had a great day last Saturday (7th Sept) in Leeds. Rachel, is a fantastic instructor and created a lovely cohesive, relaxing atmosphere to learn and create.
I have never worked with sinamay before, or made flowers. But on the day I was able create a finished fascinator, which I am happy to wear. I now have the confidence and information to create many more, knowing Rachel is on hand by email.
Thank you Rachel.
I would recommend this course to anyone who is interested.
