Having done lots of wool crafts, I was very intrigued by this new way of using wool fibres. I fell in love with wool painting or wool 'watercolour' technique which allows me to create some beautiful wool fibre pictures. I really like the therapeutic process of manipulating natural fibres, achieving fantastic new colours and effects. Thank you, Raya, for your inspirational course and your guidance. I recommend this course to anyone.

I attended the "Field with red poppies" wool painting interactive online course. It was such a friendly, relaxed day. Raya was so patient and explained everything so well, I was delighted at how well the wool painting turned out. It was thanks to the great kit & excellent demonstrations by Ray. I would thoroughly recommend trying this technique and I will be looking at other courses with Raya to build on my new skills.

Response from Magic Wool Art and Craft Studio:

Dear Linda,
Thank you so much for your review.
I am so pleased that you enjoyed the course and you are happy with your wool painting! It was a pleasure meeting you (virtually) and teaching you.

Look forward to seeing you again at my courses.

I really enjoyed taking part in my first wool painting course to create a poppy wool painting. Raya was a very enthusiastic and positive teacher encouraging and allowing us to use our creativity to create very individual wool paintings rather than just a copy of her work. The pace was suited to the beginner level and she explained everything very clearly. There were plenty of materials provided in our kits and although Raya taught us on zoom (as it was lockdown) I felt as supported as if she was with us. I would recommend this course to anyone who likes working with natural materials and wants to create a painting using a medium other than paint.

Jean Taylor - - #32703

Hello Raya,
I very much enjoyed participating in your zoom course. The kit you sent out to me was perfect and included all the materials I needed (except scissors and glue stick).
You gave us very clear instructions and demonstrated the processes step by step along the way.
I had never created anything like this before so it was rewarding learning a new skill.
I am pleased with my finished picture and have had quite a few lovely comments from friends and family.
Thank you for your encouragement and including me in your class.

Dear Raya,

I really enjoyed the course I did with you and since then I have tried to make a wool painting for a friend with some of the remainders and am finding the technique really relaxing. (I have attached a few pictures of the wool painting for my friend just in case you are interested)

I have enjoyed it all so much and I can’t wait to do more so I just wanted to thank you again for making the course so amazing!

I’ve also looked more at the pictures of your own wool paintings on your website and was just blown away by how realistic and beautiful they were - I especially loved the cat. You are so talented!

Best wishes,

I bought this online Zoom course for my Mum who is 89. She was worried that she may not manage to follow all the instructions but Raya demonstrated everything so clearly and in such a patient manner that my Mum soon relaxed and enjoyed the course. She made a lovely wool painting and we are just looking for a space on her wall to give it pride of place. Thankyou Raya, what a lovely, friendly atmosphere you create amongst your online students.

Response from Magic Wool Art and Craft Studio:

Dear Sandy,

Thank you for your comments.
I am delighted that your Mum enjoyed the wool painting course and produced a lovely wool picture. I tried to simplify the technique as much as I could to make it achievable, and I am so happy that your Mum was able to follow my instructions.

It was a pleasure meeting your Mother and teaching her.

Very best wishes of good health to both of you.

I spent a wonderful few hours learning a new skill, chatting to other enthusiasts and to make it better I ended up making a wool painting picture I am proud of. I am not a natural artist but Raya made the process very easy with her gentle demonstrations and oodles of patience. I think I may have found my new favourite art format.
Will definitely keep in touch with Raya and take some more classes with this medium and then will hopefully courageous enough to have a go on my own.
I haven't felt so relaxed and positive about things for a long time, so thank you very much.

Response from Magic Wool Art and Craft Studio:

Dear Helen,
Thank you so much for the lovely words. I am delighted that you liked my wool painting course and it helped you relax and learn a new technique that inspired you.

I had a brilliant time with Raya attending her online interactive Poppy Field Course. My husband purchased the course for my birthday. Raya has an amazing technique to create pictures using merino wool. I have never heard of this method of making a landscape picture but I was amazed the detail you can get using the vibrant merino wool colours. Raya created a lovely relaxing workshop and with the other people attending we all had a great time. I would definately recommend this course as a person new to the craft world I was proud to leave the online workshop with Poppy Field landscape picture I created. Thank you Raya....

Jill Stolberg - - #32036

What a wonderful day we had! Raya patiently introduced us to this new technique, and we were each able to create a variant of Raya's model. She encouraged us to be creative and to personalise our poppy pictures. I had learned lots of strategies and look forward to creating other pictures. We had the unexpected experience of being taught by Raya from a flat in St Petersburg over the internet, and there were no connection issues - amazing. It would be nice to be able to attend her workshop in Worcestershire some day.

Response from Magic Wool Art and Craft Studio:

Dear Jill,
Thank you very much for your review and your kind words!
I am delighted that you enjoyed the course and you feel inspired to create more wool paintings! Thanks to the wonders of internet I was able to teach everyone from abroad!

Myself, my daughter and a friend did this online workshop back in the summer. What a fabulous 4 hours spent learning a new craft.

I just wanted to drop you a quick line to say thank you so much for your virtual Poppy Field wool painting tuition yesterday.

I can safely say this therapeutic workshop was very much enjoyed and I believe the ladies, not least of all me, were very impressed by what they could craft. The age range was 86 years old to 10 years old and I have received really positive feedback about your delivery; you were enthusiastic, didn’t rush, warm and engaging – so it’s a big thank you from Blesma Outreach NI.

Response from Magic Wool Art and Craft Studio:

Dear Fiona,
Thank you so much for your review.
I am so glad that the wives of the war veterans and their relatives enjoyed this course. I really wanted to make it special as it was dedicated to Remembrance Day.
I feel honoured to be chosen to work with such wonderful people.

Thank you.

Thank you once again for a lovely course, I really enjoyed it and I am going to have a go at another sunset just for the fun. My husband was very impressed with the picture he could believe that it was just done in wool fibres.

What a fabulous class today learning the art of felt painting.

My only complaint is that time passed too quickly!

You are an inspirational teacher and presented the subject in a relaxed and informed way offering lots of encouragement and support so that I was able to proudly complete my picture and frame it to take home. I will definitely be doing more of this!

I look forward to taking up another class soon and will definitely recommend them to others.

Thank you for your time, warm welcome and endless cups of tea!

My husband bought the Sunset In Wool Painting Kit which I did online over the weekend. What a fantastic present creating this picture online with Raya's support. It was so therapeutic, relaxing and having a great time with people I haven't met before. I lacked confidence in the very beginning but as the day went on I became confident using Raya's unique teaching methods. I would recommend this course to anyone and I have mentioned this to my sister as she is a keen on Arts and Crafts.

I had such a laugh with the people attending the workshop and the time passed so quickly that it was a fantastic day. I have never used Zoom online before and with Raya's support I was able to navigate the functions of Zoom. My wife loves poppy fields and I decided to create this fibre picture for our anniversary. I have made a wool picture that my wife couldn't believe the beautiful colours, and how the picture was formed and fixed into a frame. My wife likes the picture very much.
I am proud of what I have achieved at Raya's interactive workshop with live tuition and I would recommend this course to anyone.

Response from Magic Wool Art and Craft Studio:

Dear John,

I have recently attended Raya's interactive online wool painting course. I always wanted to learn wool painting but never had a chance to come over to Raya's studio as I live far away. I am so glad that Raya offered me the chance to learn this exciting wool fibre art and craft over zoom. I experienced other techniques working with wool but this new way of using wool fibres became very interesting and enjoyable. I really liked the therapeutic experience of playing with different natural fibres creating some images and textures. Raya was very helpful and encouraging. She also sent me the wool painting kit with all the tools and materials so that I did not need to search for various things for the course. I love my finished wool picture very much. I can recommend this course to anyone!

Des - - #29818

I was a little unsure about doing interactive art online as I have never done this before. Raya was brilliant as she explained everything so simple to me as if I was at her workshop in her art and craft studio. I thought initially I wouldn't enjoy this online experience as I'm a very much a people person and love being with other people in a workshop environment where we can have a joke and get to know each other. Doing an online Zoom course was surprisingly a great experience as I have met new friends and with Raya's easy to follow instructions I can still do the art I love.

Response from Magic Wool Art and Craft Studio:

Hi Des,

Thank you so much for your comments! I am happy that you enjoyed my interactive course on zoom and found some new like-minded friends through my course. Good luck with your art projects and I look forward to seeing you again on zoom at our interactive online art classes.

I really enjoyed studying wool fibre painting with Raya Brown who helped me discover an amazing new way of using wool and silk fibres. I was totally absorbed in blending the coloured fibres and shaping them to create some interesting images and effects. Raya's experimental and creative approach to making 'wool watercolours' was inspirational. With Raya's professional guidance I managed to create a beautiful wool painting. Thank you so much Raya! I will be back for the next wool painting course very soon.

Two days ago I joined Raya and other participants for my first wool painting. It was a very nice introduction to working with wool fibres in this way and it quickly became an absorbing and relaxing craft. Raya is a very knowledgeable and talented tutor/artist and gave good, clear demonstrations which inspired confidence in making a lovely wool picture of our own choice. Raya also supplied a choice of picture frames. During the course Raya's hospitality provided us with delicious cakes and hot drinks and made the whole experience a pleasure and left me with plenty of creative ideas! I hope to join again for another wool painting workshop. Can thoroughly recommend it!

I have a great day exploring wool painting or wool watercolour technique with an excellent tutor and artist Raya Brown.

Guided by Raya I made a lovely wool fibre painting which is already hanging in my dinning room. I feel like I learnt so much within one-day workshop and going to make another wool painting next weekend. It is a fascinating technique and I recommend every art and craft person to attend Raya's wool painting courses.

I spent a fabulous Sunday creating a felt cushion cover at her Felt making workshop, I was amazed how it happened, something magical starting with wool fibres and finishing up with a whole cover. Raya was so attentive and intuitive in helping me get the finished look I wanted and I could feel her enthusiasm at my enjoyment of the day - am looking forward to my next lesson - so much to learn - thank you Raya

Thank you for the inspirational felt making workshop. I have fallen in love with the magic of felt!

I spent a great day at Magic Wool Studio with Raya Brown learning an amazing technique of wool painting. Wool painting for me was like making a picture with various fibres. I fell in love with this technique. I would like to say thank you to Raya who inspired me so much to create my work. Raya is a talented and patient tutor who gives clear step by step instructions to help her students achieve great results within a day workshop. I would recommend this course to anyone.

Did not know what to expect but Raya soon made everyone feel at home and we were quickly to work on our creations. Raya is an excellent teacher, engaging and encouraging and provides an excellent choice of wool and frames for use on the course. It was fascinating to see how the pictures evolved throughout the day and lovely to take something beautiful home as a memento. Highly recommended by someone who was a complete beginner!

Having painted with watercolours for many years, I approached the workshop with more than a little apprehension. How could one paint with wool? Would it be possible to complete a landscape in five hours? My worries were unfounded. Raya is an excellent teacher with endless patience and encouragement. I learned how to build colour and texture using fine Merino wool and completed an autumn landscape which was beautifully framed ready to take home.
Many thanks, Raya, for giving me the confidence to pursue this addictive hobby.
A further workshop is on the cards.

I thought the workshop was therapeutic. I enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. Raya proved to be a great host providing us with tea, coffee and cakes all day. It was great to recreate a holiday picture I took of the Devon landscape where I used to go on holiday. Raya showed me how to create this picture using merino wool and other fibres. I was amazed that using Raya's techniques I could create a wool painting. I am so proud of my work and it decorates the kitchen wall in my house. Raya Brown is a professional teacher with lots of skills and experience. I would recommend this course to anyone.

I would not class myself as an artistic person but this workshop gave me new confidence to continue with my artistic side.

I am so pleased to have found Magic Wool Studio where the artist Raya Brown teaches a range of skills and crafts. Raya is using her professionalism to guide you through different stages of creating an art work. I was particularly impressed by her knowledge of composition and colour scheme which she passes on to her students at workshops. I feel that I learnt so much within a 6 hour workshop. I am fascinated by wool painting technique and so happy with my wool picture. I'm going to attend more workshops especially felt making classes. I would recommend Raya's classes to anyone. They are suitable for absolute beginners as well as experienced artists.

A thoroughly absorbing workshop. I had never worked with wool before and hadn't appreciated what a flexible medium it is. Using fibres to create a landscape and blending the colours was both exciting and refreshing with an amazing and colourful outcome. Raya's patience and skill in demonstrating and teaching was much appreciated.
