What a lovely day. A knowledgeable introduction to fascinator making, with time to learn and to practice. Fun and encouraging. Fuelled my enthusiasm and now can’t wait to get started on some designs of my own. I completely recommend this course. Thank you, lovely Rachel.
I attended Rachel's workshop before lockdown happened, and had a wonderful day. She's so enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Everything was broken down step-by-step and we learned so much. I was really surprised and happy with the fascinator I made, I love it! I can't wait to do more classes with her.
Me and my mum attended one of Rachel’s Fascinator workshop, and it was amazing! Rachel’s knowledge, skill, creativity and patience is second to none. First half of the day was learning lots of different techniques and the afternoon creating our fascinators!
There was such a great array of material and choice and Rachel was extremely helpful with everything.
Highly recommend and a huge thank you for such a lovely day x
I just loved this workshop. It was relaxed but we still learned so much. Rachel was friendly, knowledgeable, patient and full of ideas and suggestions. She obviously loves what she does, and we all got caught up in that. The day flew by, I just loved it. I would highly recommend this - and all of Rachel's workshops, and I will definitely be going to more of them.
I did this workshop as a birthday present to myself. It was a real treat, I had a fab time, made myself a hat for my daughter's wedding next year and learned some new skills, I can highly recommend Rachel's studio.
I thoroughly enjoyed my day at Warrillow Studios. In the well equipped workshop, bursting with inspiration from Rachel’s masterpieces on display, I learnt numerous techniques, which I used to create my own fascinator. Rachel was friendly and knowledgeable and I left with all the information and skills needed to continue to make my own creations at home.
I thoroughly enjoyed the fascinator making workshop. Rachel is a very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and patient teacher. I learnt a lot and was delighted with what I was able to achieve. I would definitely recommend.
Great hat blocking course for beginners I would really recommend Rachel as a tutor in millinery she is fantastic and very talented. This is my second course with Rachel and I hope to be booking onto another with her again soon!
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.
Yes, I absolutely would recommend! Rachel is a brilliant teacher who is generous with her time, is patient and clearly has a great deal of knowledge and skill to offer to students in these workshops.
My friend and I attended yesterday and had a wonderful day. It was relaxing and fun, we were made to feel very welcome and were very surprised at what we were able to achieve.
I highly recommend these workshops, if you want something fun and different to do, I loved it! 😍 Thank you Rachel x
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.
We all had a great day last Saturday (7th Sept) in Leeds. Rachel, is a fantastic instructor and created a lovely cohesive, relaxing atmosphere to learn and create.
I have never worked with sinamay before, or made flowers. But on the day I was able create a finished fascinator, which I am happy to wear. I now have the confidence and information to create many more, knowing Rachel is on hand by email.
Thank you Rachel.
I would recommend this course to anyone who is interested.
I wasn't sure what to expect from this course, but I absolutely loved it. I had no experience in millinery or sewing but by the end of the day I had made my own unique fascinator which I love and all I need now is an occasion to wear it.
I have already ordered materials in order to make some more fascinators at home. I am waiting to see what other courses Rachel might run next year.
Thoroughly enjoyed this course, and thanks to Rachel's patience my end result was pretty good, despite my mistakes. Would not hesitate to recommend this to friends and hopefully Rachel would not mind me joining another workshop.
I bought this course as a gift for a friend and I to attend as her Birthday present. As a gift, I was nervous/hopeful that it would be a fun day and live up to expectations. Well, I have to say, the course and Rachel did far more than we could have imagined.
Rachel was very friendly from the moment we arrived. It was a small group (5 of us) so a lovely atmosphere. She talked us through the material and techniques we would be using and took us step by step through making various components giving us the basics to make most shapes. Once we had a grasp of the basics we were let loose to create our own designs. Rachel was a fantastic tutor as she was always there to lend a helping hand or give advice, but was very encouraging and ever patient and never tried to do any of it for you or change your design, she just made it possible for our designs to come to life.
A great class for anyone of any ability. Turned out to be a fantastic birthday gift for a friend and something we would highly recommend to anyone interested in either crafts or in fascinators!
Rachel was amazing; explained everything perfectly, made everything very easy to understand. I highly recommend to anybody. Rachel has to be one of the best teachers, totally lovely person and amazing class, thank you very much Rachel.
I bought a private workshop for mum (and myself) as a Mothering Sunday present. I could honestly not have bought a better present and we both had a wonderful day. Rachel is lovely, and we thoroughly enjoyed her company. She is very enthusiastic and knowledgeable and happy to share that knowledge
We are both absolutely over the moon with our fascinators and look forward to wearing them. We will both be looking to book further workshops with Rachel in the future and could honestly not have wished for a better teacher
