"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."

Maria Bunker reviewed: Feltmaking OOH the choices!

"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."

Feltworld - Creative Arts responded:

" 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."

"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."

" 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 :-)"
