Annette reviewed: Wet Felt making pictures in Hebden Bridge

"Thank you Josephine for a lovely 2 days 4th and 5th November on your Enchanted Woodland course. I really enjoyed putting together my Woodland panel. You are a great teacher and I found the days very relaxing and informative . It was good to be able to try out different wools and techniques and I would recommend this course to all abilities. I especially liked that we were in a small group."

Jane reviewed: Two day Enchanted Woodland Wet Felt course in Hebden Bridge

"I had a great time on the two day wet felting course 4/5th November. Josephine is a lovely teacher, very friendly and welcoming putting us all at ease from the beginning. She explained about all the different wools and about mixing colours for the picture. She was very clear with instructions and very good at suggesting ideas to improve your picture. I found the two days very relaxing and would definitely recommend it. We were taught in a small group so help and advice was always available. Josephine has an amazing selection of different wools and fibres to try and experiment with. She puts a lot of effort in to making sure that your day is enjoyable and that you come home with a picture that you’re pleased with. Thanks so much, I had a great time. "

" Thank you Jane for writing such a lovely review, it is much appreciated. It was great to meet you and chat about your aims for the course and ideas to decorate your landing with your own felted wall hangings. Wonderful to see and encourage your wet felted woodland scene to develop during the two days. Delighted you had a relaxing and fruitful weekend. "
