"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."

" Thank you very much Fiona :-)"

"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!"

Feltworld - Creative Arts responded:

" 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 :-)."

"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 :-)"

"I attended a half-day dry needle-felting course, my third class with Barbara. I have previously made a wet felt picture, and a handbag. Today I made a robin and a penguin. I have been very pleased with everything I have made, and they have been much admired by friends and family. It was a lovely afternoon out with a difference. There was a lovely relaxed atmosphere, combined with excellent teaching. Thank you, Barbara."

David reviewed: Painting with wool & silk fibres - Feltmaking

"I’ve now been on a couple of Feltworld courses. A recent full day batik course resulted in a beautiful picture that is now framed and on my wall. An earlier felt landscape course also resulted in a lovely piece that I’m in the process of framing. In both cases the knowledge and friendliness of the instructor made for an excellent creative day. Highly recommended."

Feltworld - Creative Arts responded:

" Thank you for an encouraging review David. Keep creating :-)."
