Barbara was very welcoming and an excellent tutor. I had lots of fabrics and wool to choose from and ended up with a beautiful scarf.
Response from Feltworld - Creative Art Courses:Your scarf looked fabulous, loved the colour choice and blending of your fibres :-) .
Batik picture making with my daughter. My results were much better- than I thought I could do - came away with a picture I will happily frame.......and would love to do something similar ...
Response from Feltworld - Creative Art Courses:I am so pleased that you and Sophie are pleased with your paintings. They will look great in a lovely frame.
Great day, I love the pieces I have made. Looking forward to framing them and putting them on my wall. Would do again.
Response from Feltworld - Creative Art Courses:I am glad you enjoyed your day. You have a talent for design, I hope you find the time to do more art for yourself ;-) .
Barbara was a wonderful host and teacher. We had an excellent morning and have been suprised with how good the outcomes were! Tea and cake was a fabulous addition too!
We will definitely return for another session.
Response from Feltworld - Creative Art Courses:Thank you so much for the lovely reviews :-) .
Had an amazing morning at Feltworld learning the basics of felting with Barbara. She is extremely knowlegable and really supportive helping you to achieve your desired outcome. Can't believe the result I managed to achieve in a morning.
I would 100% recommend this course to anyone thinking about it. Will definitely be back to try something different.
Response from Feltworld - Creative Art Courses:You took to the technique like a duck to water :-) . Looking forward to teaching you in the future. Maybe at my new Studio in Stafford!
This course was a gift from my daughters for Mothers Day. We spent a lovely morning making our felt creatures. Barbara is a very good & patient tutor, providing a relaxed atmosphere for us to create something nice to take away with us. Would like to return to make a felt picture.
Response from Feltworld - Creative Art Courses:It was a pleasure to teach you and your two daughters. Your cute animals are adorable:-). Hope to teach you and share the very exciting painting with wool techniques. Barbara :-)
I did this batik course on 17 September 2020. It was just wonderful. All equipment was available and thanks to Barbara I was able to make a beautiful batik first time. It is gorgeous and I will be framing it. Barbara is so friendly and relaxed with you to make you feel comfortable with the process. I would definitely promote her classes. A lovely light place to create your art. I can only thank her for her friendly manner, tips, tricks, and information.
Response from Feltworld - Creative Art Courses:It was a pleasure to teach you Jill. Your picture looks fabulous, well worth the wait during the lock down and Covid! :-)
I have followed Barbara for a couple of years and have wanted to do one of her workshop, which I finally got to do and wasn't disappointed.
I took part in her wet felting bag workshop with two other ladies, who were also lovely.
Barbara demonstrated each stage of the process and gave us individual attention as and when we needed it.
This session was an all day one where lunch was included, and you definitely need the full day to complete the piece.
I love my bag that I have made, and would thoroughly recommend this workshop.
I travelled a distance to take part in this session and was not disappointed that I had. In fact I have no hesitation in attending another of Barbara's session and hope it isn't too long before I do so.
Response from Feltworld - Creative Art Courses:It was a pleasure to finally meet you and teach you :-). Your bag looks fabulous and look forward to teaching you many more stages and techniques. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay visiting Penkridge and Cannock Chase.
A lovely morning spent learning the basics of needle felting. Through Barbara‘s guidance, I managed to make a cute felt mouse and now feel inspired (and confident enough) to have a go on my own at another small creature.
The session was very relaxed and enjoyable. Thank you :)
Response from Feltworld - Creative Art Courses:Thank you Sarah, you are a natural :-). Hope to meet you again for the next level/s. Barbara
A great ‘hands-on’ experience - wonderful guidance through the whole process of batik and would highly recommend. It was a very enjoyable day and really pleased with the resulting piece of work.
Response from Feltworld - Creative Art Courses:Thank you Christine. You and your sister Shiela created unique art works as complete beginners and they looked brilliant. I am looking forward to seeing your pieces framed :-) and teaching you in the future.
Loved the day with Barbara in Penkridge. Very open and flexible about what we could work on. We were all different levels of experience and she was able to help each of us learn new techniques.
Couldn’t believe 5.5 hours could pass so quickly!
Would highly recommend this workshop
Response from Feltworld - Creative Art Courses:Thank you Gill, It was lovely to teach you and your 3 sisters. It would be great to see your future creations :-) and little felted man :-) .
Really fun day making felt slippers. Nice lunch and cake included thanks very much :)
Response from Feltworld - Creative Art Courses:Enjoy wearing your slippers Sam, they looked fabulous. Send me a picture when you have the leather sole on them :-).
We had a felting workshop together in Barbara's garden and loved the variety of options on offer. She is very experienced and had lots of helpful tips to give to help us improve our skills. A great day!
Response from Feltworld - Creative Art Courses:Thank you Viv, I am pleased that you left with tips and tricks to continue your piece at home :-). Stay safe and well!
Really lovely day with my daughter, I made a picture and she made slippers. Barbara was lovely very knowledgable, would recommend!
Response from Feltworld - Creative Art Courses:Thank you Lynn. It was a pleasure to teach you and Sammy. Love your felt creations :-).
Fantastic opportunity to wet felt a bag. Helpful and patient tutor with plenty of experience enabling me to further understand the process. Thank you x
Response from Feltworld - Creative Art Courses:Thank you Cheryl. You have a natural talent and the passion for wool. Keep creating and developing new skills and your ideas :-).
Had this as a present with my mum. Wasn't sure what to expect as I've never done needle felting.
Loved.... Loved... Loved the course, very relaxed and informal.
Barbara was patient and full of knowledge.
Everything was provided and I would highly recommended x
Response from Feltworld - Creative Art Courses:Thank you very much Jayne, I had a fun day to and it was a pleasure to teach you how to make your funky hare :-), very well done. Looking forward to teaching you again and maybe sampling your delicious cakes again too lol
Oh my gosh. Just spent an amazing full day workshop with Barbara.
Made an 8inch needle felted doll, a fairy for my husbands memorial. Learnt so much, needed the full day as it was so relaxing and learnt so much more than I thought. Tried kits before but never understood the tips and tricks that Barbara shared with me. See her Facebook page Feltworld Creative Art Courses.
I'll be back with my daughter.
Response from Feltworld - Creative Art Courses:Jeanette it was really lovely to teach you and see your fairy develop. Looking forward to teaching you a more advanced level next time. Stay in touch :-)
Very informative day. Lots of help and support. Made a felted Nuno scarf which is unique. Would recommend anyone to give it a go. Would make a lovely day out for couples or gift for a friend where you can make something to keep and take home.
Response from Feltworld - Creative Art Courses:It was a pleasure to teach you Maxine. Your scarf looks stunning. I look forward to teaching you the next level...I am going to put on an advanced class to include layers and extra silks. Join the Newsletter on my website if you would like to hear more :-)
