A very enjoyable afternoon and I liked the idea of a goodie bag - an aide memoire with simple instructions about how to have a go at making felt flowers at home would be a lovely addition to choosing wools for the goodie bag
I'll definitely recommend your courses and spread the word

A really fun session! Tuition was excellent, with a lovely selection of resources for making our flowers. I came away with a beautiful finished product and lots of ideas. I thoroughly recommend felt flower making with Cath!

I thoroughly enjoyed and benefited from the day at Beechwood Crafts with Cath. I took my own wheel, wanting to learn with it. Cath is a very good teacher. I had felt nervous beforehand but she welcomed us with warmth and put everyone at ease. We learned about our wheels, and about different breeds of sheep and their wool qualities and we tried spinning with different types of fleece.
I feel encouraged to follow a long held wish to learn to spin and to go on and do more courses.
Thank you so much Cath. I recommend this course, highly. It was stimulating and very enjoyable.

I spent a lovely day with Cath, learning to use my spinning wheel. The setting was very relaxing and there was no shortage of coffee. She helped me to understand the basics of spinning and I left there with two skeins that I had spun. I felt very pleased with myself. This is an ideal course to find out whether spinning is for you and what wheel might suit you best. Cath is very gentle and patient and gives lots of encouragement. I highly recommend it.

Response from Beechwoodcrafts:Thanks Rachel. You have every right to be proud; your spinning was great. Lovely to have you on the course.
I had a very enjoyable day making a felted hare with Maxine and Cath. Starting with a very friendly and informal welcome, we set about learning the basics of needle felting and began creating our own hares from the bundle of wool in front of us. Everything was explained and demonstrated very clearly and any questions were answered as they arose. I found the whole experience to be very relaxing and therapeutic and was super happy with the little creature that I took home! To anyone who is thinking of having a go at needle felting, this is the perfect workshop for beginners and I would highly recommend it.
Thank you Maxine and Cath.

I had just purchased a wheel but had never spun before so enrolled on a spinning course with Cath Snape at beechwood crafts. Cath was very welcoming and first set up my wheel. There were three learners and Cath was very patient, knowledgeable and showed us what to do. I was very impressed. We all spun throughout the day and produced some reasonable work. I would thoroughly recommend Cath and Beechwood Crafts.
