Attended: Feather Fascinator

Holly is a great teacher for workshops. She has a nice intimate space that helps her guide students one on one and she has a studio that's very well stocked for students. I've taken multiple classes with her and even though I already know a lot about millinery, it's a great environment to practice in and well worth the price. The only negative I'd have to say is that she toots her own horn a lot, but in this business you have to market yourself at any moment. If you have friends looking for bridal pieces or just want a cute headpiece to compliment your wardrobe, don't hesitate to visit Artikal or take one of Holly's group classes!

Attended: Velour Cocktail Hat/Bridal Fascinator Workshop

It was fun. I got to work with velour for the first time. The teacher was very friendly and has some amazing hats. I'm sure the velour class and feather fascinator class is also interesting

Attended: Basic Velour Blocking

Great class! My second with this instructor. She is a wealth of information. The class was great and I love my fall hat!

Attended: Fabric News Boy Cap

Holly was a great teacher! She let students do most of their own work so we'd learn how the process worked and helped us when necessary. She explained everything completely and gave us good tips. I made a great hat that I got complemented on 30 minutes after I was done with the class! I'd highly encourage anyone to take a class with her.
