Courses at Louise Macdonald's studio

"Really enjoyed the Summer course! I think the week block was a good amount of time for introductions into millinery. Both Louise and Lauren were very good at explaining and demonstrating millinery techniques. Wish I could do all the courses! It's very addictive." (January Summer School – Beginners, January 2020)

"Enjoyed the week and has started the year for me in a very creative way." (January Summer School – Beginners, January 2020)

"I have learnt so much in the last week; it was lightbulbs flashing consistently." (5-Day Summer Millinery Intensive – Beginners and Intermediate, January 2019)

"Louise's patience and unparalleled ability to keep all students progressing with their chosen hat style, which can't be easy with seven very different hats being created at the same time, made the very new learning curve almost seamless. Louise and Lynn are superb teachers." (5-Day Summer Millinery Intensive – Beginners, January 2019)

"I am so inspired and am planning to do more courses. Thank you for the inspiration and perfect tuition." (5-Day Summer Millinery Intensive – Beginners, January 2019)

"Absolutely everything in the course was valuable to a beginner. Both Louise and Lynn were excellent and were good at dividing their time between all participants." (5-Day Summer Millinery Intensive – Beginners, January 2019)

"I always enjoy Louise's style of teaching – she demonstrates, we do, she demonstrates, etc. Also, she allows for our different speeds of work and different abilities/experience. I very much appreciate how she explains things at my level and the fact we have such a small group; everyone gets individual attention, as well as group instruction." (Sinamay Brim Extensions, December 2018)

"I have met some wonderful, like minded-people in the classes – of my vintage! What is it about Louise's classes and the people they attract? I always leave very inspired." (Sinamay Brim Extensions, December 2018)

"The most valuable aspects of the course are the new techniques, individual and group learning (good size, so everyone got help to prompt them along). Lovely learning environment." (Sinamay Brim Extensions, December 2018)

"Louise provides good guidance, is friendly and patient and keeps everyone happy and moving along at their different stages." (Freeform Headpiece from Parisisal Straw, September 2018)

"Thank you for such an informative and enjoyable workshop. I felt I really learnt a lot and am thrilled with your 'bandeau hat' and what I brought home. You are a very inspirational teacher and I always come home feeling I must do more!" (Virginia, Twist and Shape course, March 2018)

"I have learnt so much from Louise on manipulating sinamay, how to make fantastic trim, great little tricks to give your work a very polished and professional look. Plus a bonus on making a brim without a block. Great value. Thank you, Louise, for your patience and guidance." (Twist and Shape course, Hats Off to Adelaide, July 2017)

"Louise is a wonderful teacher, patient and helpful, and willing to pass on her tricks of the trade." (Buntal Mat course, Hats Off to Adelaide, July 2017)

"Great notes, very comprehensive and detailed. Very good demonstrations of techniques and processes. Very helpful, patient and delightful." (Twist and Shape course, Hats Off to Adelaide, July 2017)

"Louise has the most beautiful way of teaching. She puts a lot of thought into her presentations, is organised and manages a class well." (Buntal Mat course, Hats Off to Adelaide, July 2017)
