Gwen is very sweet and an amazing facilitator. The kit arrives two weeks before the course with everything you need. I was worried about having the class in the zoom, worry no, you won't miss anything, you will be able to see all the demonstration cristal clear. I definitely looking to take another class with her.
Response from Gwen’s Felted Paintings:Hi Angela. Thank you so much for your lovely review and for being such great company during the workshop :). It would be great if you fancied joining another workshop in the future. But in the meantime, happy crafting and I look forward to seeing those felted soaps. Best wishes, Gwen :)
I thought it was a great workshop. Gwen was very warm and helpful and I quickly felt very relaxed in the class and found learning the needle point felting really enjoyable. It was lovely that there was time to chat with others in the group also. Thankyou very much Gwen for a lovely class.
Response from Gwen’s Felted Paintings:Aw, thank you so much for your lovely review! I'm delighted that you enjoyed it. It was lovely meeting you both. I hope you find some time to do some more felting again in future, your bees were lovely :)
Really enjoyed needle felting a bee with Gwen. I was a complete beginner and thought the relaxed tuition and social interaction with others was superb.
Response from Gwen’s Felted Paintings:Thank you so much for your review Lynn! I am so pleased that you enjoyed the workshop. It really was lovely meeting you.
Gwen’s workshop was absolutely fantastic. She was really friendly, helpful and knowledgeable and created a really relaxed and encouraging atmosphere!
The materials were sent well ahead of time with beautiful packaging and attention to detail and there was plenty of surplus which was really generous.
Gwen is a great teacher and I look forward to booking onto another of her sessions soon!
Response from Gwen’s Felted Paintings:Hi Beth,
This was a fantastic workshop! Excellent tuition from the Gwen who was so helpful and knowledgeable about her craft. I really enjoyed the afternoon and really enjoyed learning a new skill. I look forward to more workshops!

A very enjoyable session learning a new craft. My daughter and I very much enjoyed it.
Response from Gwen’s Felted Paintings:Thank you so much for your lovely review Sally. I’m so pleased that you and your daughter enjoyed the felting :)
Loved the bee course and would like to do a online craft day every month with Gwen,
Thankyou so much
Response from Gwen’s Felted Paintings:Hello Philippa. It was lovely meeting you and Caroline yesterday. Thank you so much for your lovely review! I look forward to seeing you again :)
Wonderful class. My kit arrived in plenty of time, well packed up, lovely quality and generous amounts of wool (I could make several more bees!).
Gwen got in touch before the class with clear joining instructions. The session itself over zoom was lovely. Gwen had a great set up so we could see her and the demonstration at the same time. She explained everything really well, answered all questions and was very encouraging.
This is the first craft activity that I have successfully started and finished within a day. A wonderfully relaxing afternoon, I feel accomplished.
Fantastic for beginners or for anyone just wanting a relaxing afternoon of crafting with other people. I’m looking forward to seeing what other kits and sessions Gwen has coming up.
Response from Gwen’s Felted Paintings:Thank you so much for your lovely review Megan. I’m delighted you enjoyed the workshop :). I thought your bee was fantastic! I hope you find time to put your feet up with a crafty project again soon.
A real pleasure, from the moment my box of kit arrived to the finished bumble bee picture. I recommend this highly. It was totally absorbing. Gwen is a great teacher, the class was relaxed and friendly and great fun. I enjoyed every moment.
My kit felt like a box of treasure. I had more than enough to create my picture and have been making more bumble bees with the extra roving.
Treat yourself, the process of needlefelting is totally absorbing, very therapeutic and the finished results are lovely.
Response from Gwen’s Felted Paintings:Aww, Anne, thank you so much for such a lovely review! It was lovely seeing you again and I am so pleased you enjoyed the workshop. I love the bee you made with the extra wool!
I absolutely loved Gwen's workshop! I found Gwen's clear step-by-step instructions easy to follow, with good pacing throughout the session, giving everyone a chance to advance to the next step if they were ready. It was a really fun couple of hours and the time flew. It's great to find high quality online crafting courses with like-minded crafters sharing experiences and ideas. Although new to needle felting, I was delighted with the results. This may well be my new crafting obsession! Thanks again Gwen, I will keep an eye out for your future workshops! Jo x
Response from Gwen’s Felted Paintings:Aww Jo, thank you so much for your lovely review. It was such a pleasure meeting you. I’m so pleased that you enjoyed it and am delighted to hear that you’re hoping to continue with felting :). I look forward to seeing your creations!
The time flew as Gwen taught us how to make a felt bee. A lovely relaxing way to spend a few hours and acquire a new skill. I would definitely look to attend another course run by Gwen and I will attempt to make my own bee with the plentiful materials provided.
Response from Gwen’s Felted Paintings:Hello Joanne,
Gwen’s needle felting course was fantastic - she is a great instructor clear, patient and fun. The time flew by and Gwen’s knowledge and enthusiasm has inspired everyone to keep felting. Really recommend this course for beginners (like me) or people who want to learn some new skills and techniques.
Response from Gwen’s Felted Paintings:Hello Linda,
A fantastic course which enabled us to make something that was pretty impressive in a relatively short period of time! Gwen was very clear, concise and took her time to ensure that we all understood the instructions. A thoroughly enjoyable afternoon. Thank you!
Response from Gwen’s Felted Paintings:Hello Sheryl,
It was a very delightful course run by Gwen, who was very helpful, gave great instructions and lots of useful information. All very relaxed and would definitely sign up for further courses. It inspired me to make more felted presents for Christmas, so all materials are used up from the great kit we received on signing up initially on the course. Thank you.
Response from Gwen’s Felted Paintings:Emma, thank you so much for your lovely review! I’m so pleased you enjoyed it and am delighted that you’ve made more with your kit :). I hope you have a wonderful Christmas.
We had a very enjoyable time making a small felt picture of a robin. The kit was beautifully packaged with everything included to complete the project, as well as some spare materials to try another picture of our own design. Gwen was a delightful teacher - positive and encouraging - and the course worked well over zoom. This craft activity was a wonderful way for my daughter, my mum and me to get into the festive spirit whilst producing an attractive decoration. I would recommend this course.
Response from Gwen’s Felted Paintings:Kerry, thank you so much for your very kind review. It was really was lovely meeting the three of you and I’m so glad you enjoyed it. I hope you and your family have a lovely Christmas.
It was so good! I didn't know what to expect but really enjoyed the class. Gwen is an excellent teacher 10/10!
Response from Gwen’s Felted Paintings:Adam, thank you so much for joining my workshop and for your lovely review! I am really pleased that you enjoyed it. I hope you and your family have a lovely Christmas :)
I wasn't sure what to expect from the course having never tried a zoom craft session before, but I loved it! Gwen was a great teacher and I was pleased with my resulting robin! A great way to spend a couple of hours.
Response from Gwen’s Felted Paintings:Aw, Catherine, thank you so much for the review. It was lovely meeting you. I’m so glad you enjoyed the workshop. :)
A lovely course which was really laid back and fun whilst also giving great results for a beginner. I’m really pleased with my robin, the kit was great and leaves enough to do another one afterwards.
Response from Gwen’s Felted Paintings:Sarah, thank you so much for your review! I’m delighted you enjoyed the workshop :). Your robin was lovely 😊
I was delighted how well the felted robin turned out. I believe that is credit due to the kit provided and instructions provided by Gwen.
I haven’t previously done an online craft course but, it was both instructive and enjoyable and I will be looking to do more in the future.
Response from Gwen’s Felted Paintings:Thank you so much for your lovely review Katrina. It was lovely meeting you and I’m delighted that you enjoyed it :)

Five stars from me! ⭐️
