What's included in the price?
All tuition and materials and refreshments are included in the cost of the course, as is entry to our private Alpaca and Rare Breed Eco Farm.
I have never felted before and this wasn’t the beginners course so it was more challenging than I expected but it was a great day. Jo is a great teacher and has a lot of patience, thankfully.
The course is held on her Alpaca farm so lovely surroundings and she is obviously passionate about her animals, her business and her craft. Jo has an inspirational tale to tell and kept the group flowing and bonding.
I didn’t get to finish my hare but had a good learning curve yesterday so feel confident to finish the piece quietly at home.
Highly recommended x
