My friends and I enjoyed a very interesting day on a fe!ting course at Hilary's house, in its beautiful setting. She was very knowledgeable and encouraging and inspired us to make a good selection of
felted objects, using different techniques. A goody bag was also included so that we could embellish our artefacts at home.
We were delighted with our achievements.. which far exceeded our expectations.
We would thoroughly recommend this course! Thank you, Hilary.
What a lovely day I had at Hilary's house learning to felt. Not too many students, four on this occasion, which means not waiting for help. It was relaxed and friendly. Hilary is a great teacher and we managed to achieve far more than I expected. I came away buzzing with ideas.
I loved it that she gave us some materials to take away so we could carry on at home before we managed to get some supplies in :-) I thought that was generous and thoughtful.
