The course was set in a lovely light and airy village hall with new born lambs in the field outside. Six very different craft enthusiasts with talents in many different areas came together to make six very different wet felted pictures under Bridget's watchful eye. She is generous with both her time and her knowledge. I would highly recommend this course.

An enjoyable two days with great results.
Bridget is very generous with her time and input. There was so much to see by watching other people’s pictures as well as your own.
I wish there had been time to learn more about the finishing off process by needle felting but maybe that’s for the next course!

This was a great course in a beautiful quiet location. The materials were inspiring and Bridget’s teaching was excellent. As a wet felting beginner I learned so much and created a picture I’m proud of thanks to the right balance of advice and encouragement and individual attention throughout the two days. I’d definitely recommend this course and would love to do it again sometime.

I learnt new ways to wet felt and learnt how to add details to my work with needle felting too. I particularly wanted to learn how to produce more detailed pictures.
I learnt a lot in the two days and feel like I can take my felting to the next level now.
I am looking forward to completing my piece and producing something I can really be pleased with.
Bridgette is very talented, knowledgeable and friendly.

Having done a few felting workshops before I found this workshop provided me with far more techniques and tips that I had not been shown before. The venue was lovely and the small class meant we all received the attention we required. I left feeling totally inspired to continue to develop my felting skills.

My second weekend with Bridget and it was brilliant. The other ladies in the class were really good company. Bridget is a very patient tutor and wants you to learn. She is generous with her knowledge and skills.
I have come away with so many more techniques that have added to the ones I learnt last time and feel confident to try to paint a wool picture on my own.
Thanks for your encouragement and support Bridget. We all came away with amazing pieces.

Very much enjoyed the course, venue was good and there was a very good supply of quality materials. Possibly may be helpful to show all the group the techniques that were discussed individually as some of the tips may not have been relevant to the particular piece we were working on but would be useful in the future.

The course was fantastic! Bridget is lovely and very generous with her time and knowledge ensuring that I and the other ladies achieved amazing results. I was so engrossed for the two days that the time flew by although I did manage to finish my poppy picture. I'd always wanted to learn how to felt pictures and would highly recommend the courses Bridget runs. She is a very talented artist!

What a lovely way to spend a weekend meeting new people, learning new skills, relaxing and also coming away from a two day course with a felt picture you can be proud of. This is exactly what happen to me last weekend when I attend a two day felt picture masterclass course run by Bridget Bernadette Karn.
Bridget made you feel welcome from the minute you arrived. My course was made up of five more ladies, we all got on really well, each one of us making different themed pictures from landscapes, seascapes to flowers.
Bridget was a true professional she spent time with each of her ladies giving us advice, showing us ways to make our pictures better, guiding us and passing on her skills and knowledge to help all of us learn how to wet felt and needle felt resulting in some very good pictures being produced. Bridget is a very talented lady and a excellent teacher. I would recommend one of her course to anyone wanting to learner how to make a picture through the art of wet and needle felting, you will not be disappointed.

An inspirational course.
Bridget is an excellent teacher- in terms of knowledge, delivery and pastoral ability.
Bridget is only too willing to share the techniques she has learned and developed.
She gives constant one to one teaching and support .
Bridget worked with each student’s strengths and ideas while assisting each one of us to experiment with new found skills. We all completed a fantastic creation.
The materials Bridget provided were of the highest quality- all prepared well in advance of the course.
She created a lively ,friendly environment in which we worked.
Altogether an excellent course in a wonderful pastoral setting.
Thank you to Bridget and the course members for making the occasion so memorable.

I found the course fascinating and learnt several new techniques.We all produced very different pictures and they all looked great. I found working from a picture challenging and stimulating - Bridget has an amazing eye for colour and helped us to see colours in our photos that we had not noticed ourselves. It can be difficult to tell how much work will be involved in a certain picture so I would advise taking a few so that Bridget can help you choose. I am enjoying finishing my picture at home and look forward to coming again.Thank you Bridget for a brilliant weekend.

I’ve just spent a wonderful weekend immersed in the joys of felting. Bridget is a patient, caring and inspirational teacher. It was great to see everyone’s projects - all markedly different - and the various techniques used to make them. I am sure I will be back to do more of these weekend courses to learn more from such a master craftswoman whose felt art has been accepted into the Royal Academy’s Sumer Exhibition. It’s a lovely part of the world to learn in too. I’m hooked!

What a wonderful experience. I was a complete novice to painting with wool but managed to produce a picture I am proud to frame and hang. Bridget was welcoming, as were the rest of the ladies in the group, enthusiastic and happy to share her knowledge and skills. Yes sometimes you had to wait for her time but I had bought a group experience so realised this would be the case. I have already recommended her to a friend and we have booked another weekend.

This was the second course I have done with Bridget and learned even more techniques than before. The course is well organized and over 2 days provides enough time to complete a picture. I would recommend it to all budding felters.
