Maker's bio

I have been running Needle Felting workshops for several years now at The Hive in Shepton Mallet, Somerset and love it! We always have fun while getting on with our tasks in hand! I have a BA Hons in Creative Writing and have been running writing workshops and groups for over a decade. In my design business, Josephine Dawn Munroe, I sell original fabrics, greeting cards, handmade earrings and more. I am in the process of creating a series of needle felting/sewing kits too, such fun!

Paula reviewed: Needle felting workshops (monthly)

"A fantastic evening of felting with Jo Munroe. 😊 10 of us (with varying ability and experience) were guided step by step to create a herd of felt Highland cows. Jo organised the session superbly, with all the materials prepared in little bags for us. Jo was a patient teacher and there were relatively few injuries from needle pricks! Thanks Jo. We thoroughly enjoyed it."

Josephine Dawn Munroe responded:

" Ah, thank you so much Paula. What a lovely evening. Thank you for your lovely review and more importantly for making me feel like part of the 'gang'! Really enjoyed it."

Jo Goddard reviewed: Creative Writing Workshops

"It was my first time joining a creative writing group, I was a bit apprehensive at first but everyone made me feel so welcome that I forgot about my fears. The other people in the group were very supportive & helped me by giving me good advice & tips. The creative workshop tutor was helpful & very knowledgeable & welcoming. I'm looking forward to the next session."

Josephine Dawn Munroe responded:

"Joining the creative writing club has given me a chance to take time out once a month to work on my book. It’s a fabulous location. with a warmer welcome from jo and the other writers. Jo is an inspiration and has a natural way of bringing out your creativity. Seeing my book actually begin to form is magical!"

Tony Thatcher reviewed: Creative Writing Workshops

"I had been thinking about writing for a long time but didn't know how to move it forward. Joining Jo's evening writing sessions a couple of years ago I found myself spending time with a lovely group discovering how much fun creative writing can be. This led to the monthly Saturdays in The Salthouse. It's a lovely calm space where like minded people take time out from their usual lives to write, discuss writing and exchange ideas and inspiration. Jo is a very experienced teacher, leader and facilitator who is sensitive and responsive to individuals and takes great care to ensure that everyone benefits from attending. With Jo's guidance and encouragement I am now starting to make headway with my writing and now have the confidence to consider myself a writer."

Josephine Dawn Munroe responded:

" Thanks very much Tony, so glad you are getting lots out of the workshops, always great to have you on board with your fabulous ideas, writing and input. Jo"
