Had a lovely day on the facinator making workshop with Rachel . This was something I had never done before but Rachel was very patient and a great teacher and previous experience isn’t required.
I will certainly be making some more facinators I've now got the bug!

What an enjoyable day! An an instructor, Rachel is patient and delivers the course in an interactive and supportive way. She will provide 1:1 assistance if you need it and freedom to explore if you don't. I had such a lovely day, with a great bunch of ladies. I only wished I had booked more places and brought some friends / family. I can see how this would make an excellent birthday experience or alternative 'hen' party. I'll be looking to book on to the next stage course soon... if only you lived closer, Rachel ;-)

Thank you Maria :-) I am always happy to have an excuse to return to Yorkshire! If you have a few people who are interested I can always look at tailoring something specific to you, with a mix of beginner and intermediate! I look forward to seeing you again soon.

Thoroughly enjoyed my day. Met some lovely people and had lots of fun. Rachel was an excellent tutor and went step by step through so many different techniques. Can’t wait to wear my fascinator out and about :)

I had a great day at this millinery workshop. Rachel was patient, knowledgeable and skilled. The course was aimed at beginners and the techniques learnt were fantastic and relatively easy to follow. I can highly recommend this course for those wanting to attend in a small group setting with maximum benefit. I was so impressed with myself and the finished item, which i will wear with pride. Thanks again Rachel.
