I highly recommend Yvonne's needle felting classes. She is very accommodating on what we wish to make. She supplies a huge variety of wool of all colours and is very generous with this. It is great fun and really good to achieve something made simply from wool and a needle. I have been going to Yvonne's classes for around 2 years now. Do just sign up and come along to any of her courses! She is very genuine and authentic in what she does.
Response from Needle Felt Art:Thank you so much for your positive feedback Carol. It was great to start up again after lockdown on such a high,with so many inspiring pieces felted, so encouraging and uplifting. Yvonne.
Very relaxing and informal. Friendly atmosphere, still we came away with a beautiful seal that I am proud of. Give it a go, you won't be disappointed. Yvonne got the balance just right of giving you space and helping when needed.. I will be back!
Response from Needle Felt Art:Thank you Sebastian for your glowing review. I am really pleased you enjoyed making the seal, he was quite a triumph, look forward to felting with you again. Best wishes Yvonne.
Fantastic workshop! This was my fifth workshop today and still absolutely love it! So relaxing and Yvonne is so patient and encouraging, fab teacher. Everyone works at their own pace such a wonderful atmosphere. Would highly recommend giving it a go...you won't regret it!!!
Response from Needle Felt Art:Thank you Debbie for such a lovely review.
A lovely morning learning how to create a picture using needle felting. I had recently been diagnosed with CFS and was looking for something creative to do that would help settle the mind. I found the needle felting did this and was able to complete the morning without feeling more fatigued. The setting was lovely Yvonne had spaced the room out perfectly. All in all a lovely morning.
Response from Needle Felt Art:I am so pleased Tamsyn that you found the felting so calming and therapeutic. You certainly managed to get in the zone and create a beautiful picture.
Yvonne is an excellent teacher, very supportive, encouraging and herself a distinguished artist. The 3 hour session went by in a flash, I thoroughly enjoyed it, even though I am a man!
I am so pleased with the cat I made. I would recommend this course to anyone. Small groups even now doable with social distancing.
Response from Needle Felt Art:Thank you Sebastian, so pleased you enjoyed your first experience of needle felting, great result too. Yvonne.
As a practising artist Yvonne is a highly creative and inspirational teacher and I would highly recommend her needle felt courses.
Yvonne's needle felting course provided welcome quiet time from the busy life I normally lead. She brought a great selection of wool colours to choose from and made helpful comments and suggestions when needed. I was thrilled with the result of my felting efforts.
I had a lovely time doing Needle Felting with Yvonne. It was very relaxing working with the wool. Yvonne started the workshop with a Mindful Meditation which created a calm still space within me and helped me to access my creativity. I loved the colours of the wool and how they came together to create a three dimensional unique piece of art.Yvonne guided and supported throughout the workshop in a gentle and caring way. Thank you Yvonne !!! Definitely recommended !!!
This was my 7th needle felting workshop in 12 months. I really enjoy them and have found a craft that is very satisfying. The sessions are friendly and fun.
Response from Needle Felt Art:I am so happy that you have found a craft that inspires you, it is so rewarding seeing your progress .
Yvonne is a great teacher. Very kind and considerate in what she does. I have been going to Yvonne’s Needle Felting courses now for at least 6 months and have made some great Needle Felting creations. Yvonne is very accommodating in letting us choose what we would like to make and will give help if wanted. I have made some great animals of my choice, some I have kept and some I have given as lovely gifts to friends. I highly recommend Yvonne’s classes.
Response from Needle Felt Art:Many thanks for your kind review. I have thoroughly enjoyed felting and chatting with you on our shared journey. It has been wonderful for me to see how you have grown and evolved as a felt maker. Thank you for your continued support, it is much appreciated.
