First real attempt at dry felting. I really enjoyed the day and impressed myself and my family, of producing a felt rabbit which was pleasingly convincing! It also got the ah! factor from work colleagues and has already got me wanting to make more. Most enjoyable!

I attended Barbara's Wet Felt Picture Taster Session and thoroughly enjoyed it!

Barbara's lovely studio provided the perfect creative environment to learn the skill of wet felting and her friendly teaching style made even a novice like me, feel confident that I could create something beautiful.

I'm now hooked and can't wait to try another of Barbara's workshops.
