Gill reviewed: Felt Making Pictures -Introduction

"Had a lovely time in a friendly environment. Josephine was helpful and inspirational throughout the day. I enjoyed learning the technique of wet felting and was pleased with the piece of art I produced at the end of the session. I would definitely recommend this workshop to anyone interested in learning how to wet felt. Thankyou Josephine!"

Kathy reviewed: Needle felted Dogs and Cats in Hebden Bridge

"Really enjoyed the felting course with Jo. She was a fabulous teacher - very patient and encouraging. Me and my friend hadn’t ever done felting before the course but by the end of it we had made ourselves little replicas of our own dogs (almost !) 😊 The day was set at our pace, with a very relaxed atmosphere in a lovely building. Jo has so much experience and the credentials to match, and as expected her work is pretty spectacular. Such a nice person who is incredibly talented. Highly recommend any course run by Jo. Thank you "

Phinefibre responded:

"It was lovely meeting you both and seeing your lovely little felted dogs emerge out of the wool so full of character. Very happy you had a relaxing day and enjoyed the workshop and the beautiful building. Thank you so much for the wonderful kind review, appreciation and recommendation. "
