A thoroughly entertaining day spent making fascinators, which was complemented by a visit to the neighbours wool shop, lovely coffee and cake. I didn't realise that sparkles were so much fun and I'm booking onto another course as soon as the dates appear.

I had a wonderful day with Yolande, learning and laughing. Yolande is a great teacher. Her shop is full of inspiration and there are so many possibilities. I think I may well be back.

What a lovely day I spent on a making a fascinator with an excellent tutor Yolanda Howells. I was totally delighted with my finished result so much so I rebooked another course with her. Great help and Yolande is so helpful and knowledgeable. Would be great for a hen party.
