I loves Marie’s workshop ! (…) A definite must if you are looking for something that’s not so average to do in Paris.
— Kelsey, Minnesota
Acceuille au top par Marie et jean ! L’atelier est dépayasant et plein de mystères ! Quelques heures qu’on ne voir pas passer et vous ressortez avec une pépite à vous mettre sur la tête ! A peine sortis qu’on y retournerait déjà !
— Yohan, Paris
Amazing workshop ! Marie is such a wonderful person. (…) I’ve had a great time and was able to make an amazing head.

C’est merveilleux d’apprendre à fabriquer un chapeau et d’avoir la fierté de pouvoir le porter ensuite, d’autant plus que le résultat est professionnel

By far, one of THE most fun things I’ve done in another country! It was an amazing experience from start to finish. (…) The finished product is an amazing piece that you can wear & remind you of a wonderful time in Paris. (…) Truly a unique, one of a kind, experience.
