Needle felt hares



We are so please to be running courses again. a marquee is helping us ensure social distancing. Our priorities are to keep us all safe and have a rewarding experience.

This is a fun course in a beautiful setting. The tutor is Maxine Lowery, a great teacher and awesome needle felter. Maxine’s speciality is animals with character and charm, from tiny Mice in teacups to stags heads and elephants.

This stimulating course is suitable for enthusiastic beginners and those with some experience. Unlike many beginner courses Maxi will introduce the use of wire, which enables some flexibility in your animals.

We like to ensure everyone has personal attention so we never have more than 6 people on a course. (Reduced to 4 to comply with covid restrictions - see website for more details)

This was a brilliant workshop.
Considering the challenges with social distancing etc, Cath has provided a space in which crafters can feel safe and relaxed. All precautions are taken.
Maxine is a wonderful tutor who gave very clear visual and verbal instruction and was readily open to questions during the course of the day.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this workshop and venue.

Response from Beechwood Crafts:

Thank you Hazel
It was a pleasure to have you on the course
Best wishes Cath
