Millinery Classes - Learn Hat Making like a Professional
"Silvia is a fabulous teacher, so full of warmth, enthusiasm and incredibly knowledgeable. I had an amazing experience making my hat. She supports every part of the process in a way that garners confidence. Delightful to share the making with a small group of other women. Totally recommended!"
"I absolutely loved my first wool hat making experience with Silvia and I'm really thrilled with the result. Her introduction course to wool millinery is excellent value for money and Silvia's passion for working creatively with wool makes for a delightful and rewarding experience."
"Silvia was an absolute delight to work with! Not only is she a lovely human and ensures everyone feels as comfortable as humanly possible (a cup of tea is never far away), but she is also an incredibly patient and knowledgeable teacher. She has a true passion for millinery, which shines through and is absolutely infectious!
Be prepared for a marvellous time with her, and to also say goodbye to the sensation in the tips of your fingers. (There’s a lot of hand sewing)."
"I really enjoyed my time with Silvia, and learned so much in such a short time. She is an inspiring teacher. It was a joy to spend these calm hours creating something beautiful and I am so pleased with my hat, which turned out better than I expected, and looks so professional thanks to Silvia's patient attention to detail. It doesn't matter if you are not particularly proficient at sewing as she takes you through the basic stitches and makes everything very clear. Thank you Silvia. I will be recommending your course to friends."
