Had a fantastic afternoon with Elena. She has so much knowledge and goes above and beyond to make you feel comfortable and welcome. Her selection of biscuits are A+ as well. I think I am now addicted to hat making and hope to be back soon!

This was my first ever millinery course and with a love of hats, I had always wanted to make my own headwear. This course was excellent value, and Elena was an absolutely fantastic teacher. I had a lovely day with Elena in her London studio, and was so pleased to be able to make my own fascinator with guidance in just a few hours. Elena was incredibly patient and knowledgeable, showing me different techniques and guiding me through the steps. I really enjoyed Elena's company and will definitely go back to see her for more classes!
