We thoroughly enjoyed the day. We were very pleased with the outcome of our work, having had no idea what to expect ( or much talent) Claire was so helpful and patient and has such an amazing supply of equipment which helps each person to create a beautiful image. It was a relaxed day in the company of other participants. We also enjoyed seeing their work develop. The bonus was a lovely lunch. Thanks again , Claire
Hi Joan and Elsdon,
Thank you for your super review! I am so pleased you enjoyed your first experience of wet felting. I loved your landscapes which were both completely different and both fabulous!
I hope that you will have another go at home and I am at the end of the phone if you need any advice.
Very best wishes,
So good I have now attended a full-day course run by Claire twice - I even took my Mum and Dad the second time as a birthday present for them both.
The day is always great fun, the time flies incredibly quickly and at the end of the day you have had a good work out (great for 'bingo wings' Claire tells me!) ... and you get to go home with a lovely and totally unique piece of art.
Claire is a really great teacher - she understands and adapts to every person's needs. She is incredibly patient and an all-round lovely person to spend a day with.
Wool is such a gorgeous medium and with Claire's help everyone goes away with something stunning - I honestly have not seen anything which hasn't made me say wow! I want to go again now I'm thinking about the day!
As everyone else has mentioned lunch I will too - it was lovely and even my Dad couldn't eat any more :)
I would highly recommend to everyone .
HI Sharon. Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review. I have enjoyed working with you and we have had so much fun on both occasions. Your lampshades are absolutely beautiful and contain lots of colour and movement. There was such a lot of discussion when you created your first one as the felt would have made a fabulous picture in it's own right.
I hope to work with you again in the future and thank you for bringing your mum and dad along too!
Very best wishes,
I attended the wet felted landscape class with my mother. We both had a fabulous time, Claire is a great teacher so enthusiastic and explains and demonstrates every step of the process in a clear easy to follow way. We both came away with a beautiful picture each that we had created, cannot wait to get it framed! We also got a very tasty lunch, the day flew by and I look forward to doing some more classes.
Thank you so much for your lovely review. I am so pleased you enjoyed your day with me and created a felt landscape to be proud of! I hope to work with you again in the future.
Very best wishes,
I thoroughly enjoyed the wet felting workshop! Claire is a fabulous teacher and gave us lots of useful support and advice throughout the day. I learnt a great deal and left feeling proud of my first attempt at a felted landscape.
The lunch provided was really tasty and there was plenty left if people wanted seconds :)
I’ve now got the felting bug and am saving up to buy the materials I need to get started on more felting adventures!!
I’ll definitely keep my eyes and ears open for more of Claire’s workshops...
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a lovely review. I did enjoy working with you and discussing all your crafting experiences. You created a really lovely landscape and I loved your use of texture and colour. Please get in touch if you need any help in the future or would like to attend another workshop!
Very best wishes,
Today my daughter and I attended the workshop felted landscape. We had a great day. Claire is a good tutor and we both came away with a fantastic felted picture ready for framing. We had many laughs and Claire provided a tasty lunch. Will definitely come again for more felting.
Thank you so much for your lovely review Marijke. I did enjoy working with you both and was very impressed with your felted landscapes! It was a super day and I hope to meet you both again in the future. x
Arranged at short notice to attend with my daughter on her birthday as a surprise.
Brilliant day & produced fabulous felted landscapes.
Claire made it all seem very easy.
Also excellent lunch in her garden in the sunshine.
A grand day out indeed.
Thank you so much for your lovely review. I am so pleased you enjoyed creating wet felted landscapes. They were both excellent and very individual. I hope to meet you again in the near future.
