Barbara Simmons Meek at Feltworld - Creative Art courses
Calm confident instruction on techniques to use as was my first time. Everything was to hand when I needed it without asking making it so easy.
I came away with a lovely piece of ‘experimental ‘ batik fabric and am so pleased.
Can’t recommend her more highly. Fabulous day and so motivational.
A thoroughly enjoyable afternoon learning batik for the first time. Very informative friendly tutor who shared many tips and insights into this wonderful art.
Felt very happy and comfortable with friends in Barbara’s beautiful home surrounded by her exquisite craftwork. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Thank you Daizy. There are many levels to batik and you did well in this introduction class. :-)
After completing an introduction to batik workshop and liking the technique so much, I went back again to do a full day's workshop. All the materials and equipment were supplied, and lots of useful hints and tips given. I was delighted with the result that and it is now framed and hanging on my lounge wall. I can highly recommend this course.
I am really pleased that you have learned so much and being on two of my Batik days. Maybe join me for the crackle glaze class one day :-).
A superb day learning a new skill. Barbara was accomplished and enthusiastic to pass her techniques on. It was very relaxing and enjoyable and I achieved a product I was pleased with. The lunch and tea and cake helped the day along and I would thoroughly recommend this course.
Thank you. It was lovely to teach you again Nancy. You have a natural talent and colour sense, I will look forward to teaching you in the future :-). Maybe try the crackle glaze!
Had a great day under the supportive and knowledgable guidance of Barbara, I can’t believe that I was able to produce such a piece on my first Batik course...I’m going to get it framed. Everything required provided in the course fee + Lunch, cake and drinks all through the day. Would highly recommend this course to anyone looking to explore Batik in a friendly and supportive atmosphere.
I had a great introduction to Batik yesterday with Barbara. She was very hospitable and a great teacher. All the materials were provided, along with lunch and great cake. This was a technique I had been wanting to try for a long time. It was great to go home with pieces of work I would actually put up at home. Thank you for a great day Barbara.
Thank you for your encouraging review. Hope to meet you again-Best regards Barbara :-)
I had a fabulous day learning how do do Batik with Barbara. She is an excellent teacher and everything was supplied. Due to her expert guidance, I left with some pieces of Batik that I will frame and hang in my home.
Thank you for an encouraging review Lianne.
Your four season tree is fabulous. Looking forward to seeing it framed.
I’ve been fortunate enough to enjoy the Feltworld introduction to Batik. It’s a technique I had wanted to try for a long time and the course didn’t disappoint. All materials were supplied and the tuition was very helpful. A very enjoyable course
