The felting workshop I attended last month was a brilliant and amazing new experience with excellent guidance. I learned resonably successfully to create two pctures which I am currently mounting and making into wall hangings. It was an extremely interesting and pleasantly challenging day with good company. Highly recommended and great fun.

Lovely days felting course. It was friendly and relaxed and yet it stayed totally on subject so it didn't feel like there was time or energy wasted at all. We were well guided and given all the supplies we could need. I was really pleased with both pieces I made (one in the morning one in the afternoon) and ended up buying some fleece to do more at home as a result it was that much fun.
Looking forward to attending the november course, would love to do the september one but I'm working that day.

I was the tutor for this event and would like say that the organiser was first class and the day ran beautifully. The premises and facilities were great and the students were all really keen and attentive. They made brilliant felt and everyone seemed to enjoy the day very much; there was a happy and friendly atmosphere. The pricing was really great value and many other places and organisations that i teach for charge far more. The organiser made sure everyone felt comfortable and confident and it was a lot of fun. A big thank you for inviting me to teach and well done to each and every student - you were awesome!

A thoroughly enjoyable felting lesson with a really excellent tutor. Suitable for learners or people with experience. Each step was explained well and we all left the session with fantastic pictures and pots that left us wanting to do more. We were spoilt for choice with the amount and different types of materials to use, and encouraged to experiment. I'd thoroughly recommend these sessions to anyone who enjoys 'arty/crafty' lessons.

The wet felting day at Sandford was an enjoyable and easy introduction to felting with an experienced tutor. Friendly people at a very reasonable price. I am looking forward to the 2 and 3rd days of learning more new techniques with felting
