Needle felt fairies and mermaids (Course inactive)

A most enjoyable and instructive day. We were made to feel welcome from the start and were supplied with hot drinks (and cake). The room we used was comfortable and light and our tutor, Maxine explained the craft very well and helped us individually . The day was well planned and all the materials were supplied. Maxine and Cath are tremendously talented and creative and I felt privileged to be taught by them.

Wet felt flowers

I thoroughly enjoyed the course because everything was prepared and provided for. Cath had infinite patience and knowledge as she demonstrated two techniques of felting flowers. We had the opportunity to make both and I was really pleased with my flowers. The workshop was lovely overlooking the garden.Thank you, Cath I look forward to my next course with you.

A fabulous course, a day filled with information and fun. We all came away with beautiful cards, tags, wrapping paper and enthusiasm to do more printing!
Hannah explained everything beautifully and gave lots of support and advice as we created our lino cuts. Definitely recommended!

Lino print Christmas (Course inactive)

A really enjoyable and fun day learning how to make Lino prints. Came away with Christmas cards, gift tags and wrapping paper and lots of enthusiasm to try making more. I’ve discussed making printed tree decorations with my grandchildren and they can’t wait to get started

Hannah was informative and encouraging and the venue met all our needs - would recommend this course.

Glad you enjoyed it.
Hannah is a great teacher and I am delighted to say she has agreed to teach another course in the New Year - printing linocuts onto fabric

Advance needle felt animal - characterful mice

Had a fantastic day with Maxine delivering an amazing workshop. Cath was welcoming and and was an amazing host giving us lots of tips and support too. I was amazed as my mouse started to come together and Maxine explained everything and was an incredibly patient and brilliant teacher. Thank you

Thanks Fiona
It was a really fun day wasn’t it.
It was great meeting you and having your positive energy in the room.
And the finished mice were amazing

Wet felt flowers

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

Thanks Ruth,
It was lovely having you in the group.
I like your tip on simple instructions.
I'll add a blog about it to my website in the next few days and ensure learners have some notes to take home in future

Beginning spinning

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.

Wet felt flowers

Great step by step intro to wet felting flowers, lots of lovely fibres, silks and embellishment along with lots of clear, helpful guidance. Really made me want to do more felting!

Response from Beechwoodcrafts:

thanks Sue, I love wet felting

Beginning spinning

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.
