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.

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.

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 !!!

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. 💖

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.

Fused glass bowl and dichroic glass jewellery in Hebden Bridge, Yorkshire

In-person course
- - #30534

Really enjoyed this class. I bought it for a friend for her birthday and was really impressed with all of it. Everything felt very safe and Melanie has adapted really well to the changes faced with COVID. I’m an absolute beginner to stuff like this, but Melanie was so thorough in talking us through that I felt really confident in this class and I’m over the moon with how my bowl turned out. Already can’t wait to sign up to another class!

I attended this course recently and thoroughly enjoyed the day. Melanie Louise is an excellent tutor and made the techniques very accessible and fun to try. I am by no stretch of the imagination any good at drawing but I was stunned at the way my designs turned out. I had a great experience in a COVID safe environment and can't wait to book again.

Just spent one of the best days ever at the batik workshop! Melanie is a fantastic teacher, learning the technique was fascinating and really satisfying to create colourful pieces to take home. A lot of thought and care has gone into making these workshops safe and I felt absolutely comfortable after being quite worried about attending any workshops at the moment. Just a perfect day from start to end - I’ll definitely be booking again - can’t recommend highly enough! Thank you 😊
