Image for Needle-Felting Course with FURZIE, Ledbury, Herefordshire
I really enjoyed the course in Ledbury with Michelle. It was definitely worth the 2 hours drive I had to get there. As I was totally new to needle felting I felt quite nervous but that soon changed. We had a lovely group on the day and Michelle was and is a great teacher. To start of with I felt...

I contacted Phil with a specific interest in turning my own fishing floats. From my first enquiry to the day I arrived Phil was very helpful. A great warm greeting on the day I arrived. Nice grub at lunchtime and great support from his wife. The day was fantastic and exceeded my expectations. Lots of advice and support throughout the...

Having passed Charlie's workshop while on a walk and poking my nose into see what it was all about I decided to sign up for a course (in 2016) It was all I expected and more. Very 'hands on', selecting and chopping the trees, trimming the wood in preparation for steaming, bending small and large pieces - team effort; with...

This life sculpture course was the second weekend course my partner and I have one at Phoenix Studio - the first being a clay animal sculpture course with James Ort. Both this course, with Karin, and the one with James have been great fun, with very good tuition. The studio itself is lovely too, very light and airy, and the...

I learned an enormous amount in the day, and had a lot of fun doing it. Most importantly, steaming has now become a "tool" I can confidently...

I have been attending Beatrice's workshops for a number of years and never fail to gain something from them each time. She has an unfailing eye for what works in a sculpture - her criticism and instruction allow you to make the most out of your ideas. If I worked in isolation at home I would not be pushing myself...

Thanks for clear explanations of the basics & your friendly encouragement. I have some hearing loss so missed some things you said but that is my...

Image for Platinum Palladium Print Making workshop
I did a one day workshop with Richard a year or so ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. I had previous experience and Richard was a knowledgeable instructor taking care to go into details. I would have preferred longer on making digital negatives but as it was only one day we concentrated on the actual print making. A very enjoyable and...

I highly recommend this course. It was a great day and I learned a lot. First, when I contacted them, they were very flexible as to time. I was their only student on a Monday, which created a great learning experience (2 teachers & 1 student). After arrival, they asked me what I would like to do, which is great...

What a fabulous day. I enjoyed the whole experience and thought that Michelle was a great teacher giving us all individual attention, when needed. The location at Trumpet Corner was super and Jo and her staff looked after us all admirably. Very good value for money and I'm now addicted to Needle Felting! Thank you Michelle.
