Read the review below from Yassamin first ..... I am the lucky friend who had this as a present.
This was one of the most chilled out afternoons I have had in a long time. The whole ambience was perfect you could not sit & learn a craft like this in better surroundings or a more relaxed tutor. We arrived to tea & biscuits, chatted, wondered at the garden ...then got down to the felting.
That was just perfect too... two different parts, first the felting where we covered the soaps then the second part was the needle felting where you had a go at bringing out the artistic side of your nature. The best part of that is that if like me it is very lacking then it is quite forgiving.
I warned Catherine I was so absorbed I was staying for a minimum of at least 7 hours, but alas that did not happen as we had to leave and get back to 'real life'...... at least we had our soaps to take with us!!

I have just spent a wonderful afternoon learning two different soap felting techniques at Cat’s idyllic studio. I bought this as a birthday present for my friend and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. The studio is set in Cat’s garden surrounded by beautiful countryside and behind her impressive vegetable patch which is also full of orange and blue flowers. We were greeted with the scent of lavender, geranium, neroli and many other fragrances from the cold pressed soaps that Cat makes. It was a halcyon afternoon under Cat’s careful but relaxed supervision We drank tea and chatted and felted three soaps each which is a relatively easy process to learn but there is every opportunity to be creative with your designs too. I can’t recommend this workshop highly enough.

We had simply the best time! Cat is super welcoming and comforts you with herbal teas, treats and a really great atmosphere. The lovely garden surroundings also just makes the whole experience that little bit more genuine and special. Thanks again Cat for bringing out my hidden soap felting skills!

Taken by my son for a mother’s day treat. Huge fun in a beautiful setting and Catherine was brilliant. I would highly recommend this craft workshop and would go again like a shot.
