Really enjoyed the course and super impressed with the picture I made. Lovely to connect with some new people and relax for a while. Great tutor and very patient with us all. Hoping that some more wool art kits will be available soon.

I bought this online Zoom course for my Mum who is 89. She was worried that she may not manage to follow all the instructions but Raya demonstrated everything so clearly and in such a patient manner that my Mum soon relaxed and enjoyed the course. She made a lovely wool painting and we are just looking for a space on her wall to give it pride of place. Thankyou Raya, what a lovely, friendly atmosphere you create amongst your online students.

Excellent course with plenty of support and opportunities to ask questions. Time to work on the pictures and suggestions of how to improve aspects as necessary. I would highly recommend this course and will definitely attend another.

Wonderful craft session that eased the boredom of lockdown by 4 hours. Raya is a super teacher and it was great to meet other students all over the U.K. I enjoyed learning the basic skills of painting with wool with helpful feedback from Raya. I loved my finished picture and will be booking another session with Raya soon.

Had a wonderful time making our wool paintings, Raya is a great teacher who explains each step of the process clearly and creates a relaxed atmosphere for the course. It was alot of fun and the results were quite impressive for absolute beginners!
Response from Magic Wool Art and Craft Studio:Dear Nicole,
I spent a wonderful few hours learning a new skill, chatting to other enthusiasts and to make it better I ended up making a wool painting picture I am proud of. I am not a natural artist but Raya made the process very easy with her gentle demonstrations and oodles of patience. I think I may have found my new favourite art format.
Will definitely keep in touch with Raya and take some more classes with this medium and then will hopefully courageous enough to have a go on my own.
I haven't felt so relaxed and positive about things for a long time, so thank you very much.

The kit for the sunset painting in wool course is excellent - full of everything you need with really easy instructions and everything ready to go with the tutors excellent instruction. So good I've signed up for another. definitely recommend this!
Absolutely loved doing this course! It was perfectly pitched to the whole class including a complete novice like myself :) Really easy to follow and our tutor Raya was very patient and expert at teaching this new skill! This was so cool I went straight and signed up for another one doing a different scene in february! Am really looking forward to using this new found craft / art technique :) Thank you!
I spent a very relaxing afternoon creating a sunset picture with merino wool and I am very pleased with how it turned out. I will happily find a space for it on the wall! Raya is an excellent tutor and explained everything really clearly and with infinite patience. It was a wonderful way to try out something I hadn't done before and I would thoroughly recommend it to others.

I had a brilliant time with Raya attending her online interactive Poppy Field Course. My husband purchased the course for my birthday. Raya has an amazing technique to create pictures using merino wool. I have never heard of this method of making a landscape picture but I was amazed the detail you can get using the vibrant merino wool colours. Raya created a lovely relaxing workshop and with the other people attending we all had a great time. I would definately recommend this course as a person new to the craft world I was proud to leave the online workshop with Poppy Field landscape picture I created. Thank you Raya....
Great course with a really talented teacher who is extremely clever at getting the best from her students. I took this course and fell in love with a therapeutic wool painting technique. Now I booked a place on the online Sunset wool painting . I really look forward to develop my skills further with Raya Brown. I would recommend this course to everyone.
Fantastic course with a really talented teacher who is extremely clever at getting the best from her students. I took the first course and have not looked back! If you think you can't draw and paint let Raya prove you wrong...she did me
What a great kit. I really enjoyed using it at Raya's online wool painting course with live tuition. There were so many colourful fibres, a lovely frame and instructions with photographs that made it inspirational, easy and enjoyable to learn a new art and craft of wool painting. Thank you very much Raya. I am going to order another wool painting kit from you to give it to my mother for Mother's day.
Thank you for the workshop on Saturday, I really enjoyed it and it was something to look forward amidst the doom and gloom. It brightened my day immensely.
What a wonderful day we had! Raya patiently introduced us to this new technique, and we were each able to create a variant of Raya's model. She encouraged us to be creative and to personalise our poppy pictures. I had learned lots of strategies and look forward to creating other pictures. We had the unexpected experience of being taught by Raya from a flat in St Petersburg over the internet, and there were no connection issues - amazing. It would be nice to be able to attend her workshop in Worcestershire some day.

I really enjoyed this course and learning about the history of wool painting and Raya explained everything so well. I've ended up with a lovely picture of poppy fields. Would recommend this course to anyone wanting to learn about wool painting.
Response from Magic Wool Art and Craft Studio:Dear Alwin,
Such wonderful 10 weeks! This is great course for absolute beginners who would like to learn how to draw. I feel that my skills advanced every week. The course touches on Art history, Art theory with a strong emphasis on practical skills. Well structured classes with expert tuition by artist Raya Brown. Thank you. I would recommend the course to every beginner in Art.
Wonderful course. Enjoyable and relaxing 4 hours of learning a therapeutic technique of painting with wool fibres. Good clear demonstrations by Textiles Artist Raya Brown. Thank you. Would recommend this course to anyone!
I attended the online Watercolour Christmas Card session ran by Raya Brown of the Magic Wool Studios. It was a really enjoyable day. A lovely group of people, Raya is a wonderful teacher. I think I might finally be getting to grips with watercolour.
