Rachael Hales reviewed: Live online one-to-one needle felting workshop, ‘Little Robin’ - materials kit supplied, with Gretel Parker

"I had a really lovely time learning to needle felt with Gretel. I was very anxious to begin with, after a failed solo attempt at needle felting before I'd had any tuition, which resulted in a large misshapen lump!! Gretel was extremely patient and kind, and over the course of the workshop she helped me build my confidence and get to grips with the basics of needle felting. I am over the moon with my little Robin, and now feel that I can continue to practice in my own time, and will be able to try other projects using the techniques Gretel taught me. Using Zoom worked really well, we were both able to see enough of what each other were doing for me to learn, and for Gretel to be able to give me hints and tips as we went along. I'd have no hesitation in recommending Gretel's workshops to anybody who wanted to give needle felting a try or develop their skills."

Gretel Parker responded:

" Thank you very much Rachel, you were a pleasure to teach and it was lovely to see you enjoying your work. I hope that you continue with your needle felt ‘journey’ and look forward to seeing anything new that you create."

"I so enjoyed this workshop with the lovely Gretel. Not only is she a fabulous artist but also an extremely patient teacher. I was thrilled with my little robin and as Gretel provided more wool than was required for one bird was able to make another as a gift. Highly recommended as an escape from lockdown as well as inspiring me to start a new hobby."

Gretel Parker responded:

" Thank you so much Lisa, it was great fun working with you and I’m glad you enjoyed it!"

"I can’t remember the last time a couple of hours flew by so quickly. Gretel is not only a lovely, patient teacher but also has inspired me to continue with this fascinating craft. I’ve signed up to do her robin workshop too - can’t wait! Highly recommended."

"Learn from the best! I absolutely loved my online class with Gretel - as well as being a wonderfully talented artist she's a great teacher, able to explain things in different ways until you understand. I found working through Zoom very comfortable and easy - Gretel is able to switch her camera so you can see a close up of her hands and can describe exactly the subtle feel of what you're after. I was delighted with what I could achieve and would highly recommend the class."

Gretel Parker responded:

" Thank you very much, I’m so glad you enjoyed it and I had fun too. Your toadstool turned out beautifully!"
