Had a great day full of fun and inspiration. Learnt so much and it left me inspired to do more Felting. As Sarah honestly tells you right at the beginning of the day, Felting is Addictive so join at your peril!!
I was pleasantly surprised to end the day walking out with two completed pieces of work and having learnt the basics feel confident to experiment at home.
Looking forward to the next day Course and hope to seeing some of the lovely people I met yesterday at Carmel.
Great! Such a tonic on a dismal January day. So much colour and so much fun. I hadn't expected to come away with so many fantastic samplers of my own work. It was such a relaxing day - a total switch off from work and massaging the felt is so therapeutic.
Thoroughly recommended and I can't wait for the next course. Well done, Sarah!
My 8 year old daughter and I have thoroughly enjoyed courses in wet felting with Sarah. Sarah's teaching style is very calm and open, allowing questions to be asked freely at each stage of the process and during demonstrations. She has an ability to pitch her approach to suit young and old alike with enthusiasm and support.If you are looking to try out a new creative process this is one you can't fail to enjoy ,and you get to take home your creations that day to treasure. We hope to attend again and explore our new found skills!
We were a group of 10 (6 adults and 4 x 10-13yr olds) at the Penquoit Centre in Pembrokeshire. The day was less technical than I expected, and I was amazed at the beautiful and varied creations that everyone made. 4 layers of wool took a long time to 'massage' into felt but the result was worth the effort. Sarah was easily able to cope with us all, and gave us the individual attention we needed. She was particularly good with the younger ones! Thank you Sarah. I am enthused to try it again sometime.
I attended the nuno felting course and it was a wonderful day. Sarah provided a wide selection of materials . At each stage of the process Sarah gave us a demonstration of the technique.
The day provided just the right amount of tuition and free time to allow us to develop our projects. The results were a wonderful array of items in the most beautiful colourways.
I left the course wanting to go on and explore this felting method further.
I am definitely looking out for future courses taught by Sarah.
A really enjoyable day. Sarah`s passion for all things felt is infectious! She is a very patient teacher who provides support and encouragement every step of the way.
Sarah brought a fantastic selection of wool and we were very much like children in a sweet shop trying to decide on our colours !
Everyone on the course was really friendly and it was great to see all of the finished articles. Some wonderful hats from the more experienced attendees and a fab selection of bags of many colours from the rest of us.
I would thoroughly recommend Sarah`s workshops and will definitely be joining her again.
I thoroughly enjoyed this workshop. Sarah gave us a great introduction to the process of nuno felting. She gave us a demonstration of the technique and provided us with a wide and beautiful range of materials.
We were then let loose with Sarah keeping a watchful and encouraging eye.
I came away having had a great day, learnt a new skill, made new friends and a beautiful scarf.
I would definitely sign up for another workshop and recommend to anyone.
