Thanks to her guidance and assistance, I learned new skills and I’m really happy with the result. I’d highly recommend Joanne’s classes to anyone.”

Serene Wong, September 2018 (Fascinator Workshop)


”This was the second course I have completed with Joanne and I cannot give her enough credit for how informative and skilled she is. The class was intimate with 3 people participating, meaning Joanne was able to give a huge amount of time to each student. I am so pleased I completed this course and would recommend it to anyone”.

Sophie Bean, August 2018 (Silk Flower-M aking Workshop)


”From the moment I booked only the course, Joanne was there to help. It started with Joanne checking what colours I wanted to use to create my Fascinator. Then with her guidance throughout the course and the small group size, everyone had enough support to achieve a breath taking outcome, whilst working at their own pace. I thoroughly enjoyed my day and look forward to booking onto my next course with Joanne.”

Katy Smith, August 2018 (Fascinator Workshop)

”I wanted to say a big Thank You for a wonderful workshop today – it was a lovely way to spend a Saturday, making silk flowers in your cosy and inviting studio. Thank You for your patience and warmth and for sharing your expertise and experience with us. I really enjoyed the process and went away with a feeling of accomplishment having made two beautiful Silk flowers”

Alexandra Moreton, March 2018 (Silk Flower-Making Workshop)


”Having studied Millinery previously but lacking confidence, in late 2016/early 2017 I took a course of private tuition with Joanne. We covered a range of topics including Flower-making, Felt, Straw and Bridal. The course was excellent and I learned a great deal. Joanne is lovely, has extensive experience in Millinery and is also a very good teacher. She was happy to answer my questions (however silly they seemed!) and would make sure that I understood and had a chance to practice the techniques being taught. I now feel much more confident and I would highly recommend courses with her”

Claire Griffiths, 2016/17 (1-2-1 Millinery Tuition)


”A huge Thank You for a great week at CSM. It was a real change for me from the norm and a treat to have such attentive and intensive tuition. I am inspired to create more and thanks for the advise about goal-setting.

Kate Thomas, September 2016 (Central Saint Martins/Short Course)


”My millinery course by Joanne was an amazing experience! Joanne is super professional and talented, with vast knowledge and experience. She teaches with a lot of patience and takes into account the abilities of the student. I learned a lot of millinery techniques and flower-making skills and would really recommend the course as I got so much out of it”

Netta Gabor, November 2016 (1-2-1 Millinery Tuition)


”During my five-day course with Joanne at Central Saint Martins, we learned not just the basics of fabric flower-making; Joanne paid great attention to everyone’s individual learning needs, which ranged from making a floral headband for a young daughter to embroidering silk with tiny fabric flowers for a fashion portfolio. There was a professional and friendly atmosphere throughout the course which allowed each of us to improve our skills and to enjoy craftsmanship!”

Veronie Willemars, September 2017 (Central Saint Martins/Short Course)


”I’m excited to put my new skills to use Joanne, thank you so much for your encouraging and hands-on tuition in how to make couture silk flowers. So inspiring”

Summer-Rayne Hallowes, September 2017 (Central Saint Martins/Short Course)


”I learnt so much from Joanne during my 3-day silk flower and floral headpiece making one-to-one course. It was great being in her studio and seeing a milliner in action and being able to ask her anything about the creative and business side of what she does. Joanne was very generous with providing details of suppliers that she uses and helped me with the silk flower irons that I would need to get started.

Pauline Yau, May 2017 (1-2-1 Millinery Tuition)
