I’m not arty but went to Mount Pleasant last year with a friend for a needle felting course, I’m proud to say I made a very realistic duck. I had a thoroughly enjoyable day, Louise is very knowledgable and is an enthusiastic teacher. I would highly recommend this to anyone.

I attended a class in Felting Mice, with Louise at Mount Pleasant in September 2017. I had a wonderful day and learned lots from Louise. I had previously tried to make a felted mouse on my own, I watched YouTube videos, but was very unsure of what I was doing and decided that I needed some proper tuition. The mice were important to me, as I wanted to make them as a small hand made gift for my son and his bride on their wedding day. I dressed the groom in a kilt (the same tartan that my son was wearing) and the bride with a lace veil and a tiny bouquet. They were a huge success, chiefly because Louise took a great deal of time to show me any technique that I was unsure of.
Louise is a very calm, friendly lovely person. She obviously loves felting, her own models are exquisite! She loves sharing her skill and expertise with her students. The class is relaxed and lots of fun. It is non competitive, and Louise ensured that all students received the attention needed. I never felt that I was being a nuisance when I asked questions and I was delighted with the mouse I made at the class and enjoyed making another at home. I have since made several robins, from a kit I bought from Louise, they too are lovely and I found the instructions in the kit easy to follow.
I am looking forward to attending another course very soon. It is a great day out, good value for money, and the cake and coffee at Mount Pleasant is delicious too!

I loved the course. It was very informative but also relaxed. Louise is very approachable and passionate about felting. I have booked another course to increase my knowledge and didn’t hesitate to return to one of Louise’s courses. It is also good value and there is a very generous amount of wool to work with which is included in the price.

In October 2017 I attended a robin felting workshop at Mount Pleasant with 5 friends. We all loved the day and came away with a beautiful little robin each. I'm not in the least bit artistic, so I was amazed that I could make such a lovely robin, with help from Louise.
Louise is a great, hands-on teacher - she patiently took us through each step of how to needle felt, which none of us had ever done before. The cakes we're delicious too!
