I enjoyed the course and took away a wool painting I created. Raya is a professional artist who has gathered a wealth of skills working with wool and loves sharing her experience with her students. My wife couldn't believe what I had achieved on my first ever wool painting course using Raya's techniques. It has inspired my wife to book a wool painting workshop with her friend. I thought the course was very relaxing and I would recommend this course to anyone.
A thoroughly absorbing workshop. I had never worked with wool before and I had not appreciated what a flexible medium it is. Using fibres in a creative landscape and blending the colours was both both exciting and refreshing with an amazing and colourful outcome. Raya’s patience and skill in demonstrating and teaching was much appreciated. Thank you. John.
I thought the workshop was therapeutic. I enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. Raya proved to be a great host providing us with tea, coffee and cakes all day. It was great to recreate a holiday picture I took of the Devon landscape where I used to go on holiday. Raya showed me how to create this picture using merino wool and other fibres. I was amazed that using Raya's techniques I could create a wool painting. I am so proud of my work and it decorates the kitchen wall in my house. Raya Brown is a professional teacher with lots of skills and experience. I would recommend this course to anyone.
I would not class myself as an artistic person but this workshop gave me new confidence to continue with my artistic side.
Such a lovely lady with a great talent! Passionate in her business which shines through into her incredible work!
I so enjoyed this course and was very proud of my finished wool painting. The process was really enjoyable and Raya was a patient, friendly, and helpful teacher. I strongly recommend this class.
I am so pleased to have found Magic Wool Studio where the artist Raya Brown teaches a range of skills and crafts. Raya is using her professionalism to guide you through different stages of creating an art work. I was particularly impressed by her knowledge of composition and colour scheme which she passes on to her students at workshops. I feel that I learnt so much within a 6 hour workshop. I am fascinated by wool painting technique and so happy with my wool picture. I'm going to attend more workshops especially felt making classes. I would recommend Raya's classes to anyone. They are suitable for absolute beginners as well as experienced artists.

Thank you Raya. I had such a wonderful day.
I was a bit nervous beforehand, but now I am the proud owner of a fabulous picture, complete in its frame.
Raya is gentle, patient and experienced teacher and I really think she was so great to bring out the best in me, despite my lack of confidence.
Thank you very much for your expert teaching. I had a lovely day-it was nice tackling a new skill. I am looking forward to having another go. I am planning to attend another wool painting workshop with you in February.
I loved this wool painting class. Even though I do not have much art experience Raya was very approachable and helpful. She was awesome! I felt like I had success yet I was challenged.
Thank you so much for today. I absolutely loved making my cottage and garden wool painting.
My new hobby! Hope to see you again soon.
I have never thought that felt making was so easy and enjoyable! I loved your workshop Raya. Felt making is so therapeutic and I am totally addicted to it now. I am planning to attend a lot more workshops at Magic Wool Studio. Thank you!
I would like to thank Raya Brown for fantastic time we had last Saturday. My friend and I are absolute beginners in felting and wool painting. We were a bit apprehensive at the beginning but the way Raya structured her course made it so easy to learn, enjoyable and relaxing! Raya offers a unique therapeutic way of working with fibres and students enjoy the process well as the end result. My friend and I are so pleased with our wool paintings. Would recommend to anyone.
Thoroughly enjoyable day. Friendly welcome, excellent tuition for a total novice with no previous art/craft experience + those with experience. Well structured, great pace. I am totally amazed by what can be created in such short time. Thank you!
Excellent workshop! Well structured and informative. At the end of the great day you got to take home what you made which was a great idea. The workshop was held is an art studio which was warm and comfortable. The day went too quickly. Well Done!
What a lovely course. We were made so welcome and the teaching was excellent keeping to each persons individual pace and needs. we came away with lovely pictures and more importantly the skills to continue to paint in felt independently if we wished. Thank you.
What an inspiring workshop! Great demonstrations and it was great to try something new. I really enjoyed it and hope to make many more pictures. Thank you Raya!
Thoroughly enjoyed the workshop and seeing everyone's interpretation of similar scenes. Never used these techniques before. So have learnt something new and had a really good day.
Wonderful workshop. A completely new technique and I will do this again. Thank you so much. Gillian
A really lovely relaxing day! Workshop and clear step by step instructions were perfect for a beginner like me. Raya is a patient, helpful, welcoming and very talented lady. The end result was really lovely, pleasantly surprised and happy with it. Thank you Raya!
