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.

The wet felting course was great fun. Jo explained the materials used and the method in detail. She also inspired us with examples of what could be achieved and books we could buy. Her studio was comfortable and inspired creativity. All the materials we needed and more were readily available and the company was good. Thanks for a great day Jo.

My friend and I attended this course yesterday and can absolutely recommend it.
Jo was lovely and a very patient tutor!
Having had no experience of working with felt, by the end of the day I knew how to work the different yarns to produce felt and had made a lovely picture in felt to take home and frame. Everything was provided including refreshments. We took our own packed lunch.
There was a free car park right next door to the venue. Thank you Jo, a lovely relaxing and enjoyable day,

A really interesting workshop, with excellent chocolate biscuits!
Jo seamlessly tailored the course to meet the different needs of all 3 of the group, so we all learned new things and were all able to take home a completed piece of work. The workspace is ideal with ready access to a wide range of materials. I'm enjoying watching my work develop as it dries. Thank you Jo!

Came on this course in Feb 2022 and had a lovely day with my Mum and friend. Very pleased with what we came out with in a covid safe environment. Would recommend.

Came on this course with my daughter for a girls day! We both loved it. She’s only 10 and did so well with Jo’s instruction and help.
The day was relaxed and we came away very pleased with our lovely needle felt versions of our pets, and a new skill to practise.
Thanks so much Jo!

I recently attended the workshop. I found Jo to be very relaxed, very informative and of course, talented! The studio is well equipped, materials and equipment all of a good standard and Jo's input is just right. I am delighted with the needle felted dog I made , and it has definitely given me confidence to keep going . I would recommend the workshop to budding crafters, and I intend to return with friends and family at some stage

I had a great time at Jo's wet felting course in her bright, warm and creative studio. Jo explained in detail about materials and techniques. I learnt a lot as a novice and I'll be back for more felting courses in 2022!

As a complete newbie to wet felting I was delighted to come away with a piece of work I was pleased with. Jo was a great teacher, the course was well paced with lots of opportunity to follow our own interests and an abundance of materials to choose from. Good value for money.

Really enjoyed the workshop. The studio space is beautiful, with lots of lovely materials to choose from, and completed projects to inspire. Jo gave us a comprehensive introduction on how to wet felt, and the pitfalls to avoid. Feel much more confident in trying this at home now, and inspired to do so.

Excellent hands-on workshop to beginners with a wealth of materials and techniques to choose from. Jo was very insighful, kind and supportive and I loved it very much. I will be back soon for more! Silvia

We had a great afternoon, and were delighted with our felted birds. Jo has a wealth of knowledge, which was evident in each process, and the workshop provided us with the skills to develop our own projects. Many thanks!!

Never having needle felted before I hadn’t appreciated what time it takes to produce all the marvellous creatures for sale in shops.
Had a really enjoyable day learning a new skill and making a hare that I am very proud of.
Jo was very patient and encouraging, really good
Tutor . As only 2 of us on the course we really had 5 star tuition.

Jo is such a skilled teacher. She made everything and anything seem possible. My sister and I treated one another to the course. We were both complete beginners and had no idea what to expect. By the end of the day we had each made a piece that we liked and had learnt a lot. The studio is lovely and Jo fostered a relaxed but productive atmosphere. I would recommend this course to anyone.

A surprise 1 to 1 class due to cancellations. The experience was a very high standard with excellent teaching. I felt that all my questions on how to do the felting were answered . The teaching was far above what i had expected. I left feeling accomplished with a dog that my family said resembled my photos.
