A wonderful tranquil peaceful day with a top class tutor who is also a top class host & cook! Still can’t quite believe I produced my little hare who takes pride of place on the mantle! If you want to escape from it all, learn something new whilst having fun, then this is the place for you.

An incredible day, learning something new and meeting like-minded crafty people. Denise was a fabulous tutor and was able to guide us through making our creations in such a relaxed, laid-back but busy manner. I loved the fact that all of our creations had their own personalities. The lunch was delicious, as was the constant top up of coffee, cakes and elderflower water. Thank you so much Denise, I have learnt so much and look forward to making more. I would recommend this course to anyone, without hesitation x

What a fantastic day. I can't believe what we achieved in such a short time - I put it down to the beautiful environment, the fabulous teaching, the wonderful food and the overwhelming CUTENESS of the animals we were making! I would recommend this course to anyone without a moment's hesitation. Go! You'll love it! And you might get hooked on the most cathartic and calming craft I've ever had the joy of trying out, too :)

I so enjoyed this fabulous day with Denise who is a brilliant teacher; encouraging, patient and helpful with a good sense of humour. I started the day not even knowing what needle felting was, feeling very doubtful that I would be able to make anything worth keeping. As it turned out I amazed myself with the lovely badger that I made (and amazed my family too!) I really recommend this day to anyone. It’s a great opportunity to get away from all the doom and gloom in the world, be in good company, enjoy lovely food in a super setting and go home with a little treasure.

I have just spent a wonderful day stepping off the mad 21st Century treadmill with Denise and my fellow felting novices. What a brilliant introduction to felting. Denise is an engaging, down-to-earth lady who explained and demonstrated every step and gave us all the materials and support we needed to produce our own, completely adorable, dare I say it, little masterpieces to take home. Denise's lovely home and superb culinary skills added an extra dimension to the day. I cannot recommended this course enough - if I had my way, I'd sign up to attend every week.

As a total beginner, I cannot believe that I managed to make a gorgeous hare in a single day. Denise created a relaxed atmosphere where we all made an animal each with their unique personality. All this while enjoying coffee, a delicious lunch, and later tea with homemade cake!
An absolutely lovely day guided by a superb teacher. I recommend this course to anyone regardless of their craft skills.

A complete novice to needle felting but what a great experience. Nothing too much trouble for our host and tutor Denise who welcomed us into her home with lunch, coffee and cakes making the day unforgettable and I even managed to make my fox as a lovely momento. Now to tackle a hare at home! Feel I may well be back Denise. Thank you.
