Finish by adding eyes and a nose.

I'd been longing to have a go at Needle-felting for years. I couldn't have picked a better course.
Josephine is a truly excellent tutor. She saw us through all of the difficulties and we came out with a meaningful end product! You couldn't ask for better.
I'm going to continue practice on my newly acquired needle-felting skills at home. I will be looking out for more courses with Josephine.

Had a brilliant time last Friday on needle felting course with Josephine in Hebden Bridge, great course, good atmosphere, lots of fun and laughs. It's inspired me to have a go at needle felting at home and will maybe go back for another course in the near future.

Spent a lovely day with Jo learning the basics of needle felting and having a play at creating a little dog. Really pleased with the result which is entirely down to Jo's brilliant tuition skills rather than anything to do with my ability. It's certainly made me determined to practise some more on my own and then book myself on another one of Jo's lovely courses. Would recommend everybody to give it a try.

Thoroughly enjoyed the course. Never done needle felting before. Was a nice relaxed atmosphere, had an enjoyable day & went away with a needle felted dog that resembled my own dog.
