A thoroughly enjoyable day, with an excellent tutor, Raya. The technique was new to me, but it was very well explained and demonstrated and the finished result is very pleasing.

Thank you for the inspirational felt making workshop. I have fallen in love with the magic of felt!
I made a beautiful felted flower brooch which I attached to my bag. I would recommend this workshop to anyone- clear instructions, professional tuition with a creative approach. I am coming back to Magic Wool Studio to explore felting further and make more beautiful things.

I spent a great day at Magic Wool Studio with Raya Brown learning an amazing technique of wool painting. Wool painting for me was like making a picture with various fibres. I fell in love with this technique. I would like to say thank you to Raya who inspired me so much to create my work. Raya is a talented and patient tutor who gives clear step by step instructions to help her students achieve great results within a day workshop. I would recommend this course to anyone.

Did not know what to expect but Raya soon made everyone feel at home and we were quickly to work on our creations. Raya is an excellent teacher, engaging and encouraging and provides an excellent choice of wool and frames for use on the course. It was fascinating to see how the pictures evolved throughout the day and lovely to take something beautiful home as a memento. Highly recommended by someone who was a complete beginner!

Having painted with watercolours for many years, I approached the workshop with more than a little apprehension. How could one paint with wool? Would it be possible to complete a landscape in five hours? My worries were unfounded. Raya is an excellent teacher with endless patience and encouragement. I learned how to build colour and texture using fine Merino wool and completed an autumn landscape which was beautifully framed ready to take home.
Many thanks, Raya, for giving me the confidence to pursue this addictive hobby.
A further workshop is on the cards.

I had a great day with Raya at her Magic Wool Studio. I have learnt a Magic Technique of creating a painting with wool fibres. I had never heard about wool painting before the course. I loved it. Raya inspired me so much to make more and more wool paintings. Fantastic experience. Would recommend it to anyone.

What a great way of painting with wool fibres. I never knew that wool could be used to create pictures. Such a unique technique and so addictive. I LOVE IT. I found the workshop very therapeutic and inspirational. I recommend it to anyone. Will definitely come back to learn more wool painting techniques. THANK YOU

I thought the workshop was therapeutic. I enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. Raya proved to be a great host providing us with tea, coffee and cakes all day. It was great to recreate a holiday picture I took of the Devon landscape where I used to go on holiday. Raya showed me how to create this picture using merino wool and other fibres. I was amazed that using Raya's techniques I could create a wool painting. I am so proud of my work and it decorates the kitchen wall in my house. Raya Brown is a professional teacher with lots of skills and experience. I would recommend this course to anyone.

I would not class myself as an artistic person but this workshop gave me new confidence to continue with my artistic side.

I am so pleased to have found Magic Wool Studio where the artist Raya Brown teaches a range of skills and crafts. Raya is using her professionalism to guide you through different stages of creating an art work. I was particularly impressed by her knowledge of composition and colour scheme which she passes on to her students at workshops. I feel that I learnt so much within a 6 hour workshop. I am fascinated by wool painting technique and so happy with my wool picture. I'm going to attend more workshops especially felt making classes. I would recommend Raya's classes to anyone. They are suitable for absolute beginners as well as experienced artists.

A thoroughly absorbing workshop. I had never worked with wool before and hadn't appreciated what a flexible medium it is. Using fibres to create a landscape and blending the colours was both exciting and refreshing with an amazing and colourful outcome. Raya's patience and skill in demonstrating and teaching was much appreciated.

Thank you Raya. I had such a wonderful day.
I was a bit nervous beforehand, but now I am the proud owner of a fabulous picture, complete in its frame.
Raya is gentle, patient and experienced teacher and I really think she was so great to bring out the best in me, despite my lack of confidence.

Raya's workshop was a wonderful experience and very therapeutic.
