Had a fantastic day with Maxine delivering an amazing workshop. Cath was welcoming and and was an amazing host giving us lots of tips and support too. I was amazed as my mouse started to come together and Maxine explained everything and was an incredibly patient and brilliant teacher. Thank you

Response from Beechwood Crafts:

It was great meeting you and having your positive energy in the room.
And the finished mice were amazing

I had a very enjoyable day making a felted hare with Maxine and Cath. Starting with a very friendly and informal welcome, we set about learning the basics of needle felting and began creating our own hares from the bundle of wool in front of us. Everything was explained and demonstrated very clearly and any questions were answered as they arose. I found the whole experience to be very relaxing and therapeutic and was super happy with the little creature that I took home! To anyone who is thinking of having a go at needle felting, this is the perfect workshop for beginners and I would highly recommend it.
Thank you Maxine and Cath.
