Calm confident instruction on techniques to use as was my first time. Everything was to hand when I needed it without asking making it so easy.
I came away with a lovely piece of ‘experimental ‘ batik fabric and am so pleased.
Can’t recommend her more highly. Fabulous day and so motivational.

Had a lovely day learning a new skill and very pleased with my first attempt. It was a really friendly group and Barbara was very helpful and patient with us. Humbert the Hare is now in pride of place at home. Many thanks Barbara for a great experience - and a lovely lunch too!!

Response from Feltworld - Creative Art courses:Thank you Jane. I so glad that your Humbert is taking pride of place, looking as handsome as ever lol!
A thoroughly enjoyable afternoon learning batik for the first time. Very informative friendly tutor who shared many tips and insights into this wonderful art.
Felt very happy and comfortable with friends in Barbara’s beautiful home surrounded by her exquisite craftwork. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Response from Feltworld - Creative Art courses:Thank you Daizy. There are many levels to batik and you did well in this introduction class. :-)
After completing an introduction to batik workshop and liking the technique so much, I went back again to do a full day's workshop. All the materials and equipment were supplied, and lots of useful hints and tips given. I was delighted with the result that and it is now framed and hanging on my lounge wall. I can highly recommend this course.

Response from Feltworld - Creative Art courses:I am really pleased that you have learned so much and being on two of my Batik days. Maybe join me for the crackle glaze class one day :-).
Despite slight anxiety about train delays I arrived just in time and everything was very relaxed. All new to me so I was really interested to find out how felting was done and how much energy it took! A lovely experience. Lunch was just right and the day went so fast. Barbara is a great host and has lots of tips and skills to pass on. A really enjoyable experience.
Loved the tactileness of it all.

A superb day learning a new skill. Barbara was accomplished and enthusiastic to pass her techniques on. It was very relaxing and enjoyable and I achieved a product I was pleased with. The lunch and tea and cake helped the day along and I would thoroughly recommend this course.

Response from Feltworld - Creative Art courses:Thank you for a lovely review Jayne. Loved your picture and striking background.
I very much enjoyed attending the felt picture making course with Barbara. We received a warm welcome alongside tea and biscuits to settle and whilst we considered the focus of our project for the day, then lunch and cake as the day went on kept our energy up for all that wet felting!
Barbara’s style of teaching was clear, informative and supportive, whilst informal and easy going. Enjoyed every minute!

Response from Feltworld - Creative Art courses:I'm so pleased that you got a lot out of the day. Both yours and Saras pictures looked great. They will look brilliant in a picture frame :-).
A well run and informative creative day. Barbara is not only a good teacher but a welcoming host who made the day so enjoyable and the new skills easier to grasp. I would recommend this course to anyone looking for a new craft challenge. 😁

Response from Feltworld - Creative Art courses:Thank you for your kind and encouraging words Nick, I love my job and I hope this shines through. Lynn's scarf looked lovely and your picture was fabulous. I hope you both keep up felting as well as enjoying your other activities. Best wishes
Just had a fantastic day with my Mum learning how to make beautiful nuno felted silk scarves. Barbara is very knowledgable and enthusiastic and there was plenty of individual tuition and support as neither of us had felted before. We learned a lot, thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and the company and came away with 2 stunning individual silk scarves that we will wear with pride! Thanks Barbara :-)

Barbara was absolutely fantastic in delivering our felting course. Purchased as a birthday gift for me, my fiancé and I had a really wonderful time. Barbara was so accommodating, kind and helpful and really made the day magical. Thank you so much for a great day, with a lovely lunch too!!

Response from Feltworld - Creative Art courses:Thank you. It was lovely to teach you again Nancy. You have a natural talent and colour sense, I will look forward to teaching you in the future :-). Maybe try the crackle glaze!
Had a great day under the supportive and knowledgable guidance of Barbara, I can’t believe that I was able to produce such a piece on my first Batik course...I’m going to get it framed. Everything required provided in the course fee + Lunch, cake and drinks all through the day. Would highly recommend this course to anyone looking to explore Batik in a friendly and supportive atmosphere.

Had a splendid day and created what i consider to be a very good hare. Very relaxed and supportive atmosphere with all you need provided and as much or as little guidance as you need. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Barbara as a teacher.
