"First time at needle felting. Very surprised at how quickly new skills were incorporated into a little bird with character and personality. This is a great social skill. I really enjoyed this course, the cake and the ambiance!"

" Dear Diane,
Thank you so much for such a lovely review! It was a wonderful class and everyone needle felted such beautiful Wrens!! Your jewellery experience really shone through! Come back and craft with us again - we really enjoyed having you at The Oast Studio! "
"A wonderful felting course in a wonderful location with wonderful people.
I throughly enjoyed every minute of this very enlightening course. This was my very 1st try at felting, the tuition was excellent as were the refreshments and baked pastries. I came home with a rather long nosed, very cute, hedgehog who I wouldn't change one bit.
I also purchased a felting rabbit kit which lays in a beautifully presented box waiting for its creation.
Beware however, I believe like me, once you've been on this course you'll get the felting bug.
Very much looking forward to visiting, learning and felting on my next chosen course here.
You truly won't be disappointed - enjoy. "
"I just received my package today and I’m excited to start working on the rabbits. I have a quilt that I need to complete for a new baby girl so when I get that done that’s my next project. thank you for being so prompt and sending it."

"Christmas Snow Hare and Wild Rabbit Artisan Needle Felting Kit
When I started needle felting (over a year ago now), I found the original rabbit pdf and masterclass an absolutely brilliant start for my first kit as a beginner. It gave me everything I needed. This more recent artisan kit gives you everything you need and more, as well as including the snow hare which is a beautiful make.
The contents of the kit are excellent quality and invaluable for beginners and more advanced needle-felters, all arrived as described on the can. The 100% wool eco-felting pad is a high quality item, much better than the sponge I originally started out with. I found the wool, and colour options, perfect for both makes and the needles to be more than adequate for the task in hand.
The instruction booklet is a work of art in itself. It is very informative and the step by step instructions are both detailed and clear to follow. Clearly a lot of time and research has been put into making this a high quality kit.
I highly recommend this artisan kit both as a beautiful gift and a quality felting treat. Everything you need and more! Thank you Cecily-Kate!"
Art Felt Fibres responded:
" Thank you so much for your generous review Susan! I can certainly confirm that much thought and experience have been packed into this Artisan Bunny Kit - from sourcing the perfect fibres and colours for the make, choosing the hand-turned tool and wool eco pad as well as creating an in-depth 32 page step-by-step instruction manual. I am delighted you have got so much from it.
Even though we've never met in person I've been so impressed to see your needle felting journey over this past year via photos you have posted on Facebook! The outfits you gave your first bunnies after following the Art Felt Fibres Master Class tutorial are now on the photo carousel of this listing, as an example of how to let loose with the imagination and have fun with the unique character of each bunny while creating their own unique world! I love those felted carrots - Mr Mcgregor's got his work cut out with those wee bunnies now loose in the world! As a former stage and costume designer I fell in love with the bunnies your made in the photos you sent me after your first make! Very inspiring ... and quite astonishing that you've just taught your first needle felting workshop! Bravo! You are such a great example of how needle felting can sweep us up and become a brilliant way to express our creativity and share this with the world!
... so, like you wrote, this kit is designed to be a treat for any seasoned Needle Felter who is ready to upgrade from a disintegrating foam pad to the long lasting beautiful wool pad as well as revel in a load of quality fibre! With out a doubt it makes a perfect gift for any beginner as the instructions and photos are so clear.
I look forward to seeing your Artisan needle felted Snow Hare! I'm sure you'll deck him out in fabulous Christmas threads!
May your bunnies go forth and multiply,
All the very best and thanks again for your great review!!

"Cecily Kate's workshops are utterly inspiring.
The love, beauty and attention to detail in her work and her teaching pays off in the amazing things her students produce. We now have a small zoo of gorgeous felted animals!!
"Cecily-Kate's felt animals are the best that I have ever seen - they have so much life and character! Cecily-Kate pours love, care and attention into all of her work and her courses are no exception."
"I have some of Cecily Kate’s felt animals and flower fairies, they’re exquisitely made, heirloom-quality treasures that our family use every year to decorate! She is a truly inspiring and creative artist, and lovely with it, this course will be a treat."
