"I had a really enjoyable day and Jo was an excellent tutor. She was very patient and encouraging and I was delighted to be able to make a hare I was proud of in one day . I worked steadily but without the pressure I’ve felt on some courses I’ve been in . Harold Hare has been much admired by my friends and family. I would highly recommend this course even for a beginner as Jo clearly demonstrates and explains what to do and is on hand at all times to help . I will definitely be doing another needle felting day with Jo and also have a go at my own project at home ."
"Had a brilliant day in a small class (5 people in total). Jo is a very talented and patient teacher guiding us when necessary to achieve something resembling our pets. Want to try needle felting? Then I would recommend this class."
"What a wonderful way to spend a Friday.
In the company of my oldest friend, three other lovely entertaining ladies, producing felted versions of our beloved pets.
Josephine is a lovely, calm and very patient teacher, who guided us easily through the very therapeutic art of felting.
If you have ever wondered about giving felting a go, just do it, you will love it.
Thanks Josephine for a great day."
"Had a brilliant, fun day with my bestie, Josephine and 3 other lovely ladies on the course last Friday (10th June). Really enjoyed doing something different, learning a new skill and taking home my first needle felt project. Would highly recommend this course for first timers to needle felting. Still amazed with that I made something that resembles my cat (well sort of !!) Thank you Josephine and here's wishing you the best of everything for the future xx love from Cheryll and Kathy."
