Absolutely loved my day needle felting with Denise. I was amazed at how well my hare turned out but im sure thats all down to Denises patience and guidance. I have definitely caught the bug and have been busy creating friends for my hare with the amzing starter kit that i got from Denise. I cant recommend this workshop highly enough!

Thank you for a great day. I would definitely recommend Denise's needle felting course.
Denise is a great teacher and very skilled at what she does.
As the first man to attend Denise's workshop, I would suggest a new tag line for your advertising... "Needle Felting is for Real Men!"
Thanks & Best wishes

“Oh such fun “a great day making Harry Hare. Denise is an excellent tutor who easily instilled confidence in our ability.
I felt a real sense of achievement as the felt transformed into my new long eared friend. I love learning new skills and meeting new like minded people with food and coffee included and this course certainly met all my criteria. Happy days.
Thanks so much Denise

As a complete newbie to needle felting I was impressed at how well my hare came out! This was obviously thanks to the wonderful ‘Crafty Gal’, Denise. She’s patient and helpful, working along side us to demonstrate needle felting clearly. A delicious lunch and afternoon tea provided by Bonds completed a wonderful day. Thank you so much Denise xx

As a beginner needlefelter I was delighted to find this one day workshop to learn new skills. Having had a go at making a few things I already had some understanding of how it works, but it was really good to have Danise's patient guidance in making a hare. I learned lots of new techniques - some of which I think are unique to Denise - and had a really lovely day at Bonds with my mother and husband also making hares. I feel inspired to do more needle felting and only pricked my finger a couple of times!

Response from Crafty Gal:You're very welcome Sally! SO pleased you enjoyed it and want to do more. You know where I am, would be great to see you on another workshop. Take care Dx
My sister is a real crafter and I often wish i was more like her! But I have arthritic fingers so when i saw this course I was excited but rather apprehensive as to whether I could do it!!! I shouldnt have worried! I had a fabulous fun morning! The time flew, Denise is such an encouraging tutor on hand to help when neccesary.
I came away wanting to book on another course - thank you.

Response from Crafty Gal:Thank you Carol for such a lovely review, so pleased you want to go more! Have fun and hopefully see you soon. x
I love trying new crafts, but needle felting looked a challenge. With Denise`s excellent tutoring and working in her fabulous craft room I was amazed how quickly my Hare (Petunia) appeared before my fingers...…...I will definitely do more. The Christmas classes look interesting. I will also look into the list of felt suppliers Denise kindly gave. Those winter days will be busy.

A wonderful day full of fun and laughter. Thanks Denise for your great teaching, I am so pleased with what I achieved and have already used my new skill making another hare. Many of my friends will be getting hares for their Christmas presents.

Thank you Denise for a wonderful day! I loved it, can't believe I made my Hare, he's amazing! My husband loved him too! Xx
Jayne - - #16509
Response from Crafty Gal:How could anyone NOT love your hare Jayne?! Before he even got his head on we all adored him! You were such a hoot to spend the day with, I really hope you go on to do more needle felting - would love to see what you do next. Dx
We thoroughly enjoyed spending the day at Bonds with Denise and the rest of the group of crafters! Everyone was so lovely and Denise was a fantastic teacher. The lunch was great and the afternoon cake and coffee was a treat. Thank you so much Denise for such a fab day! We are both absolutely thrilled with our hares, can't believe we've made them, feel super-proud! It was great seeing all of the needlefelt animals lined up at the end of the day; they all looked amazing but so different with their own personalities. I'd really recommend this course, Denise was lovely and really helpful and I'm really looking forward to starting needlfelt projects at home! Xx

Response from Crafty Gal:Thank you for such a brilliant review Helen - so pleased you enjoyed your day and are ready to go on to your next needle felt project. Don't forget to send me some pics, I'd love to see where you take what you learnt with me. Dx
I found the course AMAZING! I had so much fun and created something I never thought I could before. It was so exciting seeing how it gradually transformed into something quite spectacular. It really felt like i was going on an adventure with my own little friend.
Thank you so much for guiding me every step of the way and I had a great time
Johnnie Diallo - - #16504
Response from Crafty Gal:Thank you Johnnie! You added even more fun to the day by keeping everyone on track, you were incredibly fast - I'm so happy you enjoyed it and got so much out of it. Looking forward to seeing what you go on to next! Dx
We had a lovely time at Denise's workshop making hares. It was surprisingly simple to do and very soon these dear little hares, each one different began to appear. It was very satisfying doing the little individual touches that made each one unique. We learnt a number of different techniques along the way. My son aged 10 was completely engaged all day and was very very happy with his hare when we got home. I'd recommend this workshop to anyone. Thanks Denise, I'm sure we'll come again.

This course was a retirement gift from my colleagues and I had the most amazing day. Alongside two other lovely ladies I created my own little masterpiece-it looks good enough to show off to everyone!
Denise immediately welcomes you, guides and encourages you,and turns you into a crafty gal all within a day!
Don’t dither around - book yourself onto a course now! You won’t regret it!

My daughter and I had an amazing day with Denise making our little woodland friends ! This was a wonderful experience with a lovely lady who made us feel relaxed and comfortable throughout the day.It was a great opportunity to learn a new skill which we both thoroughly enjoyed . Lunch and a delicious afternoon cake and cuppa complimented the experience! Looking forward to the next time !
Thanks again Denise x 🌸
Wendy Harrison - - #15708
Response from Crafty Gal:It was a fun day with you two - I loved it and so pleased you left happy with your gorgeous Woodland Creatures, both stunning I may add! xx
Had a wonderful day felting. Denise is a very good tutor and patient. She has everything you might need at her fingertips and lots of felting examples to spur one on. Felting is great. It needs a bit of patience while building up the animal but the result can be personalised to get the character you want. Denise is the enabler!! She also understands how necessary beverages and biscuits are to the creative process.
Catherine Davis - - #15591
Response from Crafty Gal:Thank you Cathy for the lovely review! I'm so pleased you enjoyed yourself, you fox was fab!
This was my second course with Denise and loved it just as much as the first! Came home with a wonderful fox brooch which looks lovely! Denise is a fab teacher and very patient! If you've never tried needle felting definitely try one of Denise's courses, but similarly if you are experienced you can improve your skills!

Response from Crafty Gal:Ah thank you Jen! It was lovely to see you again, and how you put everything you'd learnt last time into action, your brooch was really beautiful. Denise x
