What our students said about our virtual courses

Was part of the virtual veiling course today (17/04). It was a fantastic opportunity to learn some veiling skills, conveyed over Zoom, in a virtual class environment. As ever, Jenny and Marie’s tutoring was easy to follow, inclusive for all participants, and left you wanting to learn more. No commute and learn from the comfort of your own home, with like minded individuals; what’s not to like! Heartily recommend you have a go. Debbie

I have just finished doing an online course with Jenny and it was fabulous. Nothing was lost by not doing it in person, I learnt so much in such a short amount of time. Going to book as many courses as I can, I cannot recommend Jenny enough Abbey, Isle of Man
Thanks so much for the veiling course this morning; I feel so much more confident now about making veiling for my hats, Amanda

Jenny and Marie, Absolutely loved this course! I was anxious about using the technology but as always you patiently took us through it. I think this is the future! I’ll keep an eye out for the next courses, Deb.

Had a great time taking part in Jenny and Marie’s virtual leather flower course on Friday. The format of the course worked so well, zoom played ball and I’m so happy with the results. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge. Hannah

Loved the virtual veiling class on Monday, it was really clear and easy to follow, I’ve always had a blank spot with veiling finding it very tricky, it was actually so easy to follow online, I feel I’ve finally ‘broken my duck’! Would definitely recommend Jenny and Marie’s online classes. Fiona

Intro to veiling Really loved the veiling course. I think this is going to be something I have as a favourite too especially with the embellishment of the beads/crystals etc. Amanda

Just spent another few hours in the company of fellow millinery enthusiasts for another excellent tutorial with Jenny and Marie. Excellent value for money. Deb

I am not a lover of feathers but seized the opportunity to at least learn another technique.  This  course has really changed my mind about working with feathers and their potential as a trimming.  Clear concise  instructions with close up demonstrations. As a result of this I have already booked on the intermediate course for feathers. Can’t recommend Jenny’s tutorials enough. Deb

I joined the virtual veiling course and very much enjoyed it the whole experience. Jenny and Marie are fabulous teachers who ensure you come away with a new skill whether you are a beginner or experienced. It’s fun too. I’ve always wanted to be able to create a veiled piece as it adds such an impact. Now I can ! Thank you. Hilary

Was part of the virtual veiling course on 17/04, and the leather rose workshop on 24/4. Both courses were a fantastic opportunity to learn some new skills, conveyed over Zoom, in a virtual class environment. I’d been interested to understand how to add veiling, and being able to do that, and the leather rose workshop at home without any specialist tools was a real bonus. It was easy to order the veiling online, and Jenny sent out all the materials needed for the leather course (including the glue!). As ever, Jenny and Marie’s tutoring was simple to follow, inclusive for all participants, and left you wanting to learn more. No commute and learn from the comfort of your own home, with like minded individuals; what’s not to like! Heartily recommend you have a go and at one (if not more!) of the online classes. Debbie
