Wow- what an experience... For anyone who wants a real slice or artisan Paris and to imerse yourself in the creative culture- this is the best thing you will ever do. My husband and 2 sons and I did this 3 hour workshop and it exceeded all expectations. We learnt all about hat making as well as making our own hats and getting creative with the design. The team were outstanding and helpful and explained the steps and encouraged the whole way. We really felt like we were part of Paris- not just tourists. The hats are amazing we have worn them constantly ever since. And we have all had so many comments on them! And they will be great hats to wear not just around Paris- at home too in Australia. So not just a memorable and uniques experience- you also have your own Paris creation to take home with you. THANK YOU so much Jean and Maud, we are very grateful xoxo The crazy Australians PS Next time we are in Paris we want to do this again!

Oh, this was a super fun workshop. Jean, our instructor taught us every step and helped when needed. It was delightful to have so many choices of colors and decorations available to truly make an original hat. From floppy felt to firm finished shape (a choice of four styles). It will last for years I'm sure.

This was so fun. I had a great time learning how to make a trilby. The teacher and everyone there was great and so sweet. They have other classes and I might have to come back and do one or the other classes some day
