This is truly a wonderfully interesting and therapeutic course to take up. Silvia is a wonderful teacher, full of millinery knowledge and I only wish the course was longer than four weeks. I loved every minute of it. If you’re looking for something different to try, this is definitely the course for you.

I just finished this excellent course and am very pleased with my gorgeous hat! Silvia is a great attentive, helpful and fun teacher who takes you through the process of making step by step, from design through stitching and final touches. The outcome is your own unique hat exactly how you want it. I highly recommend the course. Had such a great time, learnt a lot and came away with a fab hat! Don't hesitate to book!

Silvia is a very knowledgeable millinery tutor who creates a friendly and enjoyable atmosphere on her course. She skillfully guides you through the creation of whatever hat you wish to make, encouraging you to design it yourself, whilst teaching you how. I would definitely recommend this course to people of any skill level and experience. You will come away with your new favourite hat, having had a great time and learnt new skills.

I did this course along with a couple of friends, and we all had a really lovely time, learnt new skills and came away with beautiful hats that we had made ourselves from scratch! Silvia is a brilliant teacher and all round lovely person, sharing her skills and passing on her experience in a relaxed and friendly way. I thoroughly recommend her course!

Silvia is an brilliant teacher, really takes the time to make sure you have understood what she is showing you. Thoroughly enjoyed the course and I have a very stylish prime riding hat to show for it!

My husband bought me this course (after significant hints!) for Christmas - and I loved every moment. Silvia is a wonderful teacher with many years of experience behind her - so lots of tips and techniques to pass on. You're in great hands. I love my hats, but being able to make my own is another level altogether. I couldn't recommend this more highly. If you've always wanted to give hatmaking a go - just do it! I promise you won't regret it!
