Response from Feltworld - Creative Art courses:Thank you Lucy,
I’ve now been on a couple of Feltworld courses. A recent full day batik course resulted in a beautiful picture that is now framed and on my wall. An earlier felt landscape course also resulted in a lovely piece that I’m in the process of framing. In both cases the knowledge and friendliness of the instructor made for an excellent creative day. Highly recommended.
