Felt art and meditation holiday / Retreat in The French Alps

A lovely venue high up in the Alps, good food, excellent tutor, and learned many new techniques. Debra had moved the contents of her studio to France for the holiday and we had a very good choice of wool, sari silk and other items to make unique items. The pace over the week was good with some free time every afternoon and trips out to see the surrounding countryside. The mindfulness sessions led by Debra for those who wished to attend each morning before breakfast were an added bonus.

Felt art and meditation holiday / Retreat in The French Alps

What a wonderful week we had in the Alps, Debra is very friendly and easy to get along with, the course is well structured with lots of felting, meditation if you wish, a couple of hours free time in the afternoon and delicious meals. We had a day out at the local market and surrounding area and we went out for a meal one night. The Nordic tub at sunrise and sunset was popular too!! A lovely holiday.

Debra’s enthusiasm is contagious; I thoroughly enjoyed this workshop!
Seeing all the lovely completed works and array of yarns and threads in the studio is exciting and informative.
Debra is encouraging and helpful, generously giving lots of ideas and materials in order to produce work to be proud of.
Well worth a visit, this perfect venue has a wonderful cafe and handy car park(have £3.30 with you) 😀

Felt art - felt-making workshop - with Debra Esterhuizen, Kendal, Cumbria

I thoroughly enjoyed this workshop. I learnt so much about wool and felting as well as how colours work. Debra was so generous in the amount of different types of materials we used. We each made 2 large pieces of work, encouraging our individual creativity and interests, rather than trying to recreate a previous work. Debra demonstrated and guided us to explore and experiment. I can't wait to attend another session.

A wonderful day of creativity, learning and fun. Being given a huge selection of wools, silks and ribbons alongside huge amounts of enthusiasm and support from Debra ensured that even I produced 2pieces of work that I am pleased to show to family and friends! The Hub is a fabulous learning environment thank you Debra!

Just completed the scarf making course with Debra. I had a really great time and made some new friends as well! Debra is a fine teacher and instils confidence in the most nervous pupil! The whole day went far too quickly.

Nuno felt-making scarf workshop with Debra Esterhuizen (Course inactive)

Another fabulous day with Debra, learning the art of Nano felting. I learnt to make a sampler piece, which is gorgeous, and I love my scarf.

I had a wonderfully relaxing day and learnt so much. Debra is an excellent teacher, very calming.

If you get the chance to take a workshop with Debra, you will have a wonderful day and take home a beautiful piece of art, that you can wear.

I would like to say many thanks for classes! I learnt a lot from Debra. I love the way she teach and how much time she dedicate for every single student to show them what need to be done or direct them in right way. I appreciate her dedication and will to share with students a lot of fascinating knowledge! I'm delighted with my pixie shoes and lot of inspirations that now I have in my head!

We had an excellent time on this course. Debra is a great teacher, who explains things clearly and seems to have endless patience. Her studio is calm and comfortable in a lovely building. She has gorgeous wool supplies in lots of luscious colours, and the slippers i made are not only comfortable, but they are more beautiful than anything I have seen in a shop. I highly recommend this course.

Went on a slipper making course last weekend. I had a wonderful day with great people. Debra is a lovely, warm person whose knowledge and enthusiasm for her craft is infectious to all around her. Great day - and I came home with a fab pair of slippers !! Go ahead and book for Debra's courses - you won't regret it.
