This workshop was exactly what I was looking for and even more. Olga is an amazing teacher -knowledgeable, professional, patient and full of passion. She answered all my questions and shared her passion for felt. I have learnt more than I was able to find in books and internet for few years and I would love to get back for some more lessons.
I enjoyed the day enormously and felt very welcome by the whole family. I would highly recommend workshops with Olga.

Thank you.

Excellent course run by the lovely Olga, what a knowledgable lady! As a beginner in wet felting I had researched courses and decided to go with Olga as the photographs of what is achievable far exceeded my beginners expectations.
Olga's knowledge of wet felting, and her patience with all my questions made for a really great day.
I came away with more than I had anticipated, and will be able to begin exploring the many ways to use the fabric I can hopefully produce.
Many thanks to Olga and her husband Michael for making me feel welcomed.

It was a very interesting day for me. Firstly, I met a beautiful family .
Secondly, I received a lot of information, having received so much information from the Internet, I would spend a huge amount of time. Moreover, all information is confirmed by practice. Olga explains and shows everything at a high level. I hope to continue the lessons in the near future.
Also I want to wish Olga success in her work as an artist and teacher.
Thanks again for a wonderful day!
Hope to see you soon . Thank you so much .

Olga is an incredible artist and she is very generous with her craft. I have a new appreciation of the hard work behind this amazingly versatile art and Olga was the perfect teacher and host for the day. We were able to make bracelets and decorations and I had a sense of accomplishment of the end of the class. Olga is a fabulous teacher and I highly recommend her course to anyone of any ability - very instructive and entertaining!

I spent a wonderful day with Olga learning new wet felting techniques - she is an excellent teacher and I learned so much about making felted garments, using different kinds of wool and embellishments. Whenever I travel I look for opportunities to learn more about felting - I was in the UK for a few days and was delighted to find this great opportunity!

An absolutely fantastic, talented and inspirational teacher. The course was so informative, we learnt so much in one day. I have been left inspired and excited to do my own felting at home. Olga taught us to create our individual pieces and explained the techniques in detail. Thanks for an excellent day !
