Sarah reviewed: Feltmaking OOH the choices!

"Great day with Barbara - making my beautiful Nuno silk and felt scarf. I really did not expect to be able to make something so beautiful - particularly since I was a first time felter. A lovely day with my sister - working together on our projects - I can highly recommend the course - we will be back to do another scarf or maybe have a go at Batik next time, We were really looked after by Barbara - she is so patient and helpful - and makes a lovely vegetable soup! Great value for money - a full day of activity, plus tutoring , plus lunch and a beautiful handmade one-off scarf - fab!"

Feltworld - Creative Arts responded:

" Thank you for the glowing review ?. I had a lovely day sharing my skills with you and Janet. You can be proud to say that you made your unique scarves. I will look forward to teaching you again in the future.... You will enjoy the batik ?. B"

Sue Ricketts reviewed: Needle felted animals or pictures

"This short introduction to needle felting took me from knowing nothing to making a lovely little bird in an afternoon. Barbara is a clear and encouraging tutor and obviously loves both the craft and teaching it. Would thoroughly recommend."

Feltworld - Creative Arts responded:

" Thank you Sue, your cute black bird was expertly made. Good luck in your future projects."

Tracy reviewed: Needle felted animals or pictures

"We had a great day creating a bag using the wet felting technique with Barbara. The course is well structured and gives you plenty of range to experiment with colours and designs. Barbara is very easy to get along with and provides clear information. We came away from the day with a great bag and ideas to use the technique again. Lunch is also provided, alongside all materials and the course tuition, so it makes the course good value for money. We hope to return for the needle felting course in the not too distant future."

Feltworld - Creative Arts responded:

" Than you Tracy, I look forward to teaching you again...with your beautiful bag :-)."

Constance Wolstenholme reviewed: Needle felted animals or pictures

"Never having done anything like this before I was a bit nervous but Barbara quickly put me at my ease and assured me that by the end of the morning I would have a little creature to take home. After two hours of expert tuition and a few laughs along the way I left with my first needle felt creation: a cute penguin! I'm now all fired up to start on next year's Christmas tree decorations and am fully intending to go to another of Barbara's workshops very soon."

Feltworld - Creative Arts responded:

" It was lovely to have you on my half day workshop Constance. Your penguin looked brilliant. I will look forward to teaching you in the future. B"

Karen reviewed: Needle felted animals or pictures

"My friend and I spent a day with Barbara making our creations; my friend made a gorgeous Jemima Puddleduck and I made a Hare. We had a lovely day. Barbara is a relaxed and kind person who generously shares her expertise in a really humble way. She made us both feel comfortable and embraced the quirkiness of our creations. Indeed, we both loved that she did not try to 'fix' what we had done, but allowed our work to be just that: our work. We had an absolutely lovely day and would thoroughly recommend her courses."

Feltworld - Creative Arts responded:

" Thank you for such a lovely review Karen. Your hare and Jemima look fabulous ?. I do feel that it’s important not to take over my students work lol. I must admit that I have to keep my hands tied behind me sometimes unless I’m given permission to fix of course!! Merry Christmas"

Eileen Leighton reviewed: Feltmaking OOH the choices!

"I spent a wonderful day with Barbara learning the techniques for making a bag. I’d done some wet-felting before, having taught myself from books, but was lacking inspiration for what to do with the pieces when finished. Barbara is patient, encouraging, informative & incredibly generous with her ideas. There were four of us on the day, all doing something different & we all had lots of one-to-one help. I came away with a really nice bag & lots of confidence & the inspiration I needed to carry on this amazing craft. Barbara opened my eyes to the endless creative possibilities of felting & I will definitely be going back for more workshops - I can’t wait. Eileen"

Feltworld - Creative Arts responded:

" Your bag looked amazing Eileen, and I feel inspired to use my bags again ?. I’ll look forward to seeing your future projects."

Fiona reviewed: Feltmaking OOH the choices!

"As a novice felt maker I had no idea what I would be able to produce during a one day course with Barbara. I completed two pictures which I am so pleased with, one I will frame and keep and the other is going to be made into a cushion cover as a Christmas gift. Barbara was really informative, showing me and a friend the techniques we needed but very hands off so we really had completed our own felt designs. She was always there to encourage us and to show us other techniques we could use to improve our designs. With four people and three different ability felters making completely different products Barbara provided just the right amount of help and support for every one throughout the day.The lunch provided was great too. I am definitely going to felt again, many thanks Barbara."

Feltworld - Creative Arts responded:

" Thank you Fiona. Happy felting and if you need any advice, give me a shout and I'll be happy to answer any questions. Barbara"

Carol reviewed: Feltmaking OOH the choices!

"I thoroughly enjoyed my day with two other ladies making a Nuno felt scarf. Barbara was a superb teacher, explaining each step clearly with a great level of knowledge and skill. It was all very relaxed and enjoyable, and I left the day fully inspired to continue with this craft and even try out batik on another course (to be booked with Barbara of course!)."

Feltworld - Creative Arts responded:

" Thank you Carol. Loved your sarf and I hope you get many years of pleasure from it :-)."

"I spent a wonderful day today playing with colours and textures to make my nuno felted scarf.

She has a lovely selection of colours to choose from and gives lots of encouragement. What a lovely way to spend a day."
