Wonderful workshop. I went home with a stunning beret hat and had the best time learning how to make it. Martina really took the time to teach and show me. She was very welcoming and knowledgeable. She really knew what type of hat would suit me. I couldn’t be happier with my hat and wholehartedly recommend making the trip to pretty Ingatestone!

What a great experience and quality product. Very authentic hat making process so I was very pleased with the end result. Don’t be put off by going to a house rather than a studio, Martina is very accommodating. Great value for money and a very different craft!

I love hats and went all the way to Egatestone to try the hat making workshop. Before the experience, I tried the local deli recommended by Martina and food and tea there were lovely. Making the hat was much more difficult than expected and the steaming process was actually hard work! However Martina was really patient and she helped me a lot. Finally, after a few mince pies and a few teas, we ironed the hat, decorated it but the smiley chosen to stick on my hat melted under the iron so I decided to keep mine bare for the time being. I now know I won’t become a milliner but I think the hat I made today is really stylish. The two women who attended the workshop with me were lovely and they gave me a lift to the station. Overall it was a really good experience.

Really enjoyed our afternoon of hat making. Martina explains everything very well and it was a thoroughly enjoyable, rewarding afternoon. To leave with a smart, wearable hat is an added bonus!

Martina was amazing! This experience was great and I really enjoyed the time and effort it took to make my new favorite accessory! Martina has tons of experience and her hats have appeared in many British films (think Harry Potter). It was a great way to spend an afternoon, and if I needed another hat and was in the area, I would do it again!

We had a great time and left with a super hat. Martina is lovely and a good teacher. She gave us help when needed but also encouraged us to complete as much as we could ourselves. Martina also gave us lots of tea!
