What a wonderful day spent with Yolande, a very knowledgeable lady, explains things really well and is very helpful and likes to share her knowledge. I made a beautiful fascinator and was so pleased I have done the course a few times and I am sure I will do it again soon.

Millinery taster course

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.
