Lucy C reviewed: Needle felted birds in Hebden Bridge

"I spent a lovely afternoon doing this workshop. I've never needle felted before and it was a great introduction. Jo is extremely warm, friendly and relaxed and the venue is perfect. "

Angie Downes reviewed: Felt making pictures with wool in Hebden Bridge

"This was my first time wet felting and I loved every minute. I am now hooked! Jo was so welcoming and friendly, immediately putting me at ease and giving me the confidence to try a new skill. She is a brilliant teacher explaining how wet felting works, demonstrating each stage clearly and giving advice, handy tips and support throughout. I teach art to 7-11 year olds and Jo kindly shared her experience of wet felting with children, giving me lots of ideas on where to resource cheaper materials and equipment and how to make the process easier for younger children. I can't rate this course highly enough. Fantastic!"

Phinefibre responded:

Ali McGill reviewed: Needle felted dogs and cats at the Birchcliffe Centre in Hebden Bridge

"I booked this course for myself and my mum, it was a small studio which was very relaxed. My mum has early onset dementia and Josephine was patient and broke down the skills into manageable chunks. We were very successful in our doggie creations and came away very happy :-)"
