This was a fun course - I learned so much and Melanie was a brilliant teacher. It worked well over zoom and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending it.

The whole experience was excellent - the kit was amazing, and, as this was all new to me I was a bit apprehensive! However the online session with Mel was fabulous, so relaxing and friendly, with the step by step demonstrations I was able to produce a piece of work with lovely colours which I am very happy with. Looking forward to trying my second creation! Great medium and value, well done Melanie.

I had a lovely afternoon last week creating my first felt landscape. The kit that came in advance was beautifully put together and instruction book so thorough. The online class went at a gentle pace and let me thoroughly enjoy the experience. I am so delighted with my finished landscape and the kit came with enough extra to do another one so I could involve my 10 year old too! There are two happy felters in my house after this course. I would highly recommend it!

I thoroughly enjoyed my online session with Melanie and would greatly recommend to anyone wanting to learn a new skill and experiment!! Melanie presented easy to understand instructions in a lovely engaging manner and I am very happy with my “work of art!”

A very enjoyable and informative course. Whilst I had done some wet felting before I found plenty to enjoy and learn and Melanie explained clearly how to needle felt.

I really enjoyed the Course. My first time with felt and also first zoom tutorial. Was very enjoyable and didn’t feel that it was a remote learning. Melanie is a great teacher and was encouraging throughout with clear instructions as well
Highly recommend it

I have done numerous courses with Melanie and they have all been great. This online workshop was a fab opportunity to do another course with her from the comfort of my own home. Would definitely recommend this to help keep the creative juices flowing throughout winter.

I can highly recommend Melanie's on-line tuition and felting kit which was good value and contained all I needed. She was helpful and informative. It was great to be able to take part in a class from my kitchen! I am very pleased with my felted landscape and would like to take another class - hopefully in a classroom situation but if lockdown lasts might buy another kit.

Response from Crafts in the Valley:

Thanks for your review! Take care, and I hope to see you online or on an in-person course soon.
Best wishes,

I highly recommend Melanie's glass fusion workshops after attending two of them with a third to follow in the New Year. Her workshops are fun, informative and very creative and Melanie is a fantastic tutor.

I attended the online felting course earlier this year and I'm hooked! The Zoom course worked surprisingly well and Melanie's instructions were clear and encouraging. She is a great teacher and the course is well designed and clearly communicated.

Thanks Rosemary! I really appreciate your feedback. xx

My friend & had a lovely half- day workshop learning how to decorate a glass wave.
It was very absorbing & the time just flew past.
Would highly recommend this.
So sad that we can't do the Christmas workshop due to lockdown, but we'll be back !!!

Response from Crafts in the Valley:

Great to hear you'll be back to do more fused glass! Thanks for the review xx

A workshop session with Melanie is a joy and an absolute tonic for the soul. The atmosphere is lovely, Melanie is a wonderful teacher and the set up re Covid is so well planned that this is the only workshop setting where I have felt confident & safe. I have been to a few classes now with more booked when lockdown ends and I can’t wait. Can’t recommend highly enough. 💖

Response from Crafts in the Valley:

Thanks for the review Miriam, it's great fun having you on the workshops x

Lovely day out on this workshop. Melanie is an excellent teacher and very talented. She was always on hand to answer any questions and very patient. Plenty of ideas and examples for inspiration. Wide range of equipment and materials too. This is my 3rd workshop with melanie and have booked a christmas one as well. It was also good to see how much effort had gone into making the workshops covid safe.
