What a fantastic day.
Rachel is an amazing tutor,friendly,encouraging,helpful.
She explained and demonstrated the techniques brilliantly and once we had grasped the basics we created our own designs with Rachel there to give advice.
I would highly recommend this workshop.

A most enjoyable day. The professionalism and overall support given to making the most of the basic techniques to create a fascinator from scratch were excellent. What myself and granddaughter Charlotte thought what was going to be a lot of sewing and time consuming was made easy. The perspective of design and creativity was made endless by the expertise given freely and made simple by Rachel. Would recommend anyone to have a go. Looking forward to the advance course in the new year.

The venue was very convenient, warm, a kitchen for the essential cuppa, plenty of tables for cutting out, others were available if required.
The course run by Rachal started on time, instructions were clear simple and repeated and assistance readily available if required. Rachal made a point of asking each of us to introduce ourselves and our give a brief outline of our crafting/sewing experience which gave her an insight into the assistance individuals may require.
All materials were plentiful and numerous test pieces and pre-made fascinators in Rachal boxes gave us guidance and inspiration.
We were a lively group and we were all amazed at how much we achieved in a day. Angela (Best Kept Secrets owner) is going to facilitate an advanced course early in 2019 we were all so inspired!
