"Wonderful course using different felting techniques. Walking in as a total beginner and leaving, understanding how to complete wet and needle felting techniques. A great way to spend a day, coming away with two beautiful pieces."

"Attended Barbara's felting course today. I'm a complete novice and did not know what to expect. I was given a warm welcome on arrival and shown a variety of things to make. Thank you for your patience and enthusiasm which helped me to create something which I am proud of. The process is fascinating. If you want to try something different I suggest that you give this a try. Expert tutition from a lovely lady. Thank you for an enjoyable day."

"I did a day course with Barbara learning how to wet felt. I made a felt landscape picture. I had never done anything like this before but Barbara was lovely and welcoming and convinced me that I would leave at the end of the day with something to be proud of. I thoroughly enjoyed the day and loved the way the felt changed with each process , and yes, I am extremely proud of my very own work of art!"

"I have been on two of Barbara Meeks courses.....what an inspirational teacher/instructor. I have learned so much from Barbara and she has given me the confidence to work with and experiment with my own dogs Husky Wool using Wet Felting and Needle Felting techniques. I designed (with Barbaras help) a Nuno Scarf using my Husky Wool from each of my 12 Dogs.....just love it!!!!! I could not have achieved this without Barbaras clear teaching and instruction......EXCELLENT!!!!!! Will certainly be attending more!!"

"First real attempt at dry felting. I really enjoyed the day and impressed myself and my family, of producing a felt rabbit which was pleasingly convincing! It also got the ah! factor from work colleagues and has already got me wanting to make more. Most enjoyable!"

"I have never done anything like this before and was a little hesitant . I needn't have worried. The very patient Barbara ensured we were all fully trained at each stage and was happy to re-explain points when necessary. We had a good laugh whilst watching our scarfs appear before our very eyes. Barbara even provided a delicious lunch . I came away delighted with my creation and have given it as a present to another friend. She has decided to go on a course with Barbara as well . What a great day. Thank you Barbara"

"A very enjoyable day indeed! Barbara is a great teacher, and her studio is an excellent place to work. She's got some wonderfully inspiring samples to show the range of effects you can achieve with Nuno felt... Very good value, too; I'm delighted with my scarf and plan to experiment further. Certainly I'd recommend this course to anyone!"

"I attended Barbara's Wet Felt Picture Taster Session and thoroughly enjoyed it! Barbara's lovely studio provided the perfect creative environment to learn the skill of wet felting and her friendly teaching style made even a novice like me, feel confident that I could create something beautiful. I'm now hooked and can't wait to try another of Barbara's workshops."

"I made a stunning piece of art work on this Nuno felting day with Barbara. It is being measured up to be framed to hang in my living room as it goes perfectly with everything. I had an absolutely fabulous experience learning something new, the nuno process is just wow, how amazing it is to see the silk and wool react in such a way - beautiful. I'm afraid Barbara that I will be back for more. Fabulous teacher, so calm and explained everything in such detail in stages, and had a good sense of humour too."

"Barbara combined giving you the freedom to use your own ideas, whilst guiding with confidence in the finished scarf as you really do not know how it is going to look by the end! As it happened I am delighted and thrilled with my piece. Barbara also provided a great introduction to various techniques and instilled a desire to carry on and learn more more more of this exciting skill. She ensures that the classes are relaxed, informative with lots of examples to inspire the imagination. I will definitly be back for another course and bring my friend and daughter next time...already purchased some birthday gift vouchers :-) Fiona x"

"I had a one to one lesson with Barbara so I had her full attention. I have limited use of one hand, but I am capable and with a little help with laying out the fibres from Barbara for an hour in the morning, I completed a beautiful delicate floral unique scarf or I may use it as a wall- hanging. Barbara is very patient, explains the processes in simple stages and a great teacher. She has many years experience and her rug which she made in Turkey is beautiful. Highly recommended."

"My husband bought a place on this course feltmaking course as a Christmas present. We went to Stafford and made a weekend of it, hubby went to see his friend and I on my fabulous day with 3 other ladies. I loved it and I am hooked on feltmaking. I was and still am absolutely amazed at how so very adaptable the fibres are maniputated just by using soap and water and a bit of rubbing that such beautiful pieces of art can be produced. I love my scarf - I could never buy one like it and I am so looking forward to my birthday gift voucher next month, the hints surely must have sunk in."

"My friend and I have just been one a nuno felting scarf day with Feltworld and had a lovely relaxed day with Barbara, who is so experienced and answered our many questions as virgin felters lol. She put us at ease and explained with many stages and demonstrations which made it very easy to follow. Her work is so beautiful and textural. We are delighted with our new creations and excited to wear them. I will also use mine as a hall table runner in the summer... I don't care I will show off lol.five We have bought gift vouchers to attend another course for our birthday in July/August."

"I really enjoyed my day at Barbara's felt scarf making course. It was my first time at wet feltmaking and it was brilliant. Barbara is a very experienced feltmaker/teacher, she talked us through each stage, step by step, I think that we were all amazed at how the felt gripped through the silk scarf and crinkled it up to create a beautiful texture. I love my scarf and wear it a lot, many people have commented on it too :-)."
