Joan johns reviewed: Needle Felt a Blue Tit (with video instructions)

"The video instructions were faultless; very explicit and the wool worked exactly as Gwen the instructor was telling us and couldn’t be improved. The package of wool was very generous and I was able to make, as she said, four more. I would emphasise, as Gwen did, in taking your time when doing this work. Although this was my first needlefelt, I have worked with textiles; sewing machines; needles etc. So anyone who’s never picked up a needle before will be able to do this if they listen carefully about ‘use of the barbed needle’. Thoroughly enjoyed doing the work and will certainly be buying from Gwen again. "

K Betts reviewed: Needle felt a robin - live online workshop

"A fantastic course! What a lovely, friendly and patient lady Gwen is. Myself and my Mum thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon and we came away with 2 beautiful robin’s at the end, despite never having needle felted before. The kit was great quality, with plenty of wool and an extra needle. Everything we needed was supplied. Can’t recommend the course enough, would love to do another."

Vanessa reviewed: Needle Felt a Bumblebee

"I didn't think there was any chance I could complete my first needle felting project during an online class but with Gwen's help, I am now the proud maker of a charming felted bumble bee. Gwen's screen set-up and instruction were excellent, as was the kit she mailed out. She is a welcoming, organized and very talented teacher and I look forward to my next chance to take a class with her."

Liz Dixon reviewed: Needle felt a blue tit (Midday on Fridays and 3pm on Saturdays)

"A very well paced and organised ZOOM workshop. The teaching was excellent and it was great to have a finished blue tit at the end of the course. The kit was nicely packaged and presented and with the addition of your own backing fabric there is enough wool to make a flock of blue tits! Looking forward to taking part in the Toadstool workshop later on this month."

Amy Severino reviewed: Needle felt a blue tit (Midday on Fridays and 3pm on Saturdays)

"Gwen's online workshop was a delight. The kit came beautifully packaged, with high quality supplies. Her instruction was so easy to understand and the way she handled the class with an aerial camera along with her own face in the gallery so we could see her while she was instructing, along with the project demonstration was simply perfect. Gwen gave instructions and demonstrated very clearly and was open to questions throughout the workshop. She didn't rush anyone and was attentive by checking in on each of the participants. I highly recommend Gwen's workshops. It was a lovely way to spend a few hours, and I am so pleased with the result of my project."

Gwen’s Felted Paintings responded:

" Amy, thank you so much for such a lovely review. It was such a pleasure meeting you (and your two lovely little dogs ☺️). I am so pleased that you enjoyed it!"

Audrey Humphreys reviewed: Needle felt a blue tit (Midday on Fridays and 3pm on Saturdays)

"I really enjoyed the felting workshop and was amazed with the beautiful result that I got, a blue tit that is fit for framing and will take pride of place on my wall. Gwen was really lovely and made everyone feel at home even though it was over Zoom. The kit arrived well packaged and with high quality materials, everything you needed with lots to spare. During the workshop Gwen shared her knowledge in a way that put everyone at ease and there were lots of hints and tips as she demonstrated each stage, she is very talented and knowledgeable, nothing was too much trouble. I would wholeheartedly recommend her workshops."

Gwen’s Felted Paintings responded:

" It was really lovely seeing you again Audrey. Thank you so much for your kind review, it’s hugely appreciated ☺️X"

"Wonderful introduction to felting and thoroughly enjoyed the workshop on zoom. Gwen was very patient with the group and manged to keep the ones who were ahead engaged as well as the slower ones so that we all knew what to do next. Very proud of my Bumblebee picture and now I hope to create more pictures using this technique."

Debbie reviewed: Needle Felt a Bumblebee

"I was given an online class as a birthday present and joined the class with some of my friends (a lovely way to catch up with people at the moment!). The materials arrived well in advance and a very generous amount of materials were included. The class itself was easy to follow and Gwen was great at checking in on everyone's progress throughout the session (and happy to repeat steps as we all worked at different speeds). This was my first online craft course and I really enjoyed it - the afternoon went by very fast!"

Gwen’s Felted Paintings responded:

" It was lovely meeting you Debbbie, and I am so pleased that you enjoyed the workshop. Thank you so much for such a lovely review. Best of wishes, Gwen"

Nicola Drennan reviewed: Needle felt a toadstool - online workshop with full kit provided

"I really enjoyed my first foray into both felting and an online course. I’ve admired felted pictures and often wondered if I could do it as I’m hopeless at art - I can’t draw a straight line with a ruler. But Gwen’s class has converted me. Gwen was very friendly and an expert at her craft. It was also good the way Gwen noticed that some people were ready to move on and showed the next stage whilst making it clear to the others to take their time. I enjoyed the class interaction and definitely would like to do more of this. I’m hoping to sign up some friends for the bluetit course Gwen. Thank you Gwen."

Gwen’s Felted Paintings responded:

" Nicola, thank you so much again for this lovely review! I’m delighted that you enjoyed it and very much looking forward to seeing you again :) Best of wishes, Gwen"

Beverley reviewed: Needle felt a toadstool - online workshop with full kit provided

"A most enjoyable workshop. I was a complete novice, and it was amazing to produce a a lovely mushroom felted picture in 2 hours. Gwen is an excellent teacher, and imparts her knowledge & skills very effectively via Zoom. All materials amply supplied in the kit which was dispatched to arrive in good time for the workshop. Enough wool left over to attempt another picture which I definitely will. Great to have learned a new skill & looking forward to doing another workshop in the future."

Gwen’s Felted Paintings responded:

" Hi Beverly, Thank you so much for such a lovely review! I am delighted that you enjoyed it and really pleased that you are hoping to do more with your leftover wool. It would be lovely to see you again if you fancied doing more in the future! Best wishes, Gwen"
