I really enjoyed making the mistletoe and am really pleased with the end result. I found the process of making very therapeutic and calming and the instructions were clear and paced right for all in the group. I was really pleased with what I managed to achieve and think it looks professional. The whole afternoon was fun and had the right Christmas spirit. I would definitely do it again.
The Mistletoe making course was a great Christmas activity for anyone who loves arts and crafts.
There was very clear step by step explanations that allowed participants to work at their own pace which made a lovely and calm workspace. I particularly love the feeling of watching what you are making develop and transform into something new as you go through the different stages and start to bring it together - some wires into a stick, into a branch and eventually into a plant.
I would definitely recommend taking this course as not only was it fun but there is something very rewarding and special about making your own Christmas decorations.
Lovely way to spend an afternoon. My Mistletoe turned out well and Heather's instructions were very straightforward to make sure we were all on course to produce the best Mistletoe we could. Lovely way to be sociable without too much pressure as everyone concentrates on their crafting with tea and coffee and brownies. Would definitely recommend.
I had such fun making my own felted mistletoe and will keep it as a festive decoration for years to come!!
The kit was super straight forward and very well instructed. Heather is a great teacher and has clearly thought out the process to make it a fun and engaging.
Highly recommend for some festive fun with a beautiful decoration to take home after.
