About Feltworld - Creative Art courses

As a self employed artist graduating with a Textile Design degree 20+ yrs ago and on to teaching in schools and FE, leaving this behind 5yrs ago to concentrate on my Feltmaking and Batik Painting practice.
I love to share my creative skills to children, adults and groups in the community. I love to travel and learn from the experts. I made a large rug in Turkey and attended many Batik courses in Bali to name a few.
I look forward to answering any questions you may have. Barbara
