Maker's bio

I have been a needle felt artist and tutor for about 4 years creating 3D wool sculptures and 2D dog portraits. Recently I was invited to teach specifically for wellbeing groups in Hampshire. I live in beautiful countryside and most of my 'felted friends' are inspired by the natural world in and around my garden. I am passionate about this therapeutic craft and love to share it's creativeness.

Lesley Milton reviewed: Needle felting for wellbeing - cheery robin

"This was the third Needlefelting course I have attended with Carol having started as a complete beginner a few months ago and I cannot recommend her classes highly enough. Her designs are inspirational, incredibly lifelike and achievable by all levels of ability in the available time. Carol is extremely welcoming, attentive and patient, no matter how many needles you break! She provides all required materials and clear instruction and her classes are perfectly sized to enable provision of all required support and assistance. The day is thoroughly enjoyable and engenders a real sense of well-being and you come away with a wonderful creation and a great sense of achievement. I am now the proud owner of a pair of running hares, a lovely life-size robin and a seriously cute “cheeky robin’” and am looking forward to attending more of her classes to add a hedgehog and a moon-gazing hare to my growing collection. "

" Lesley, that's so kind of you to give me such a comprehensive review. It's always a real pleasure teaching you, I can see how much you share my passion for needle felting and all of your creations have been excellent. I do really try to make all my 3D sculptures achievable, even by complete beginners. I want people to go home with a finished little 'felted friend' that they are proud of. I find needle felting so therapeutic and am delighted to be sharing my skills, tips and tricks in my workshops. I look forward to seeing you again soon Very best wishes Carol Felted Friends"

Susan Dell reviewed: Needle felting for wellbeing - cheery robin

"I had a fantastic day on my course with Carol. We had a lovely group, mixed abilities but everyone joined in and we had fun. I was a complete beginner so was a little apprehensive but I need not have worried. Carol made us all feel very welcome into her home and she shared her love of felting with us. We all went home with recognisable 'cheeky robins' My first creation but not my last I hope! Thank you Carol!"

Felted Friends responded:

" It was a real pleasure to meet and teach you Susan. I do love seeing people new to needle felting create their first 3D sculpture. Your cheeky robin was delightful and you should be proud of him. I hope he will be suitably admired by family & friends. I hope you will make much more now you know what you can achieve with the skills you learned. I hope to welcome you back for another workshop in the future. Very best wishes Carol "
