"I took the class with Heather last Saturday and found it to be very enjoyable and useful. She is an excellent teacher, keeping very much to the subject and patiently helping us with the details. Our equipment was laid out in a way that made it easy to use. Alongside this Heather had made delicious cakes, and provided music that gave the session a relaxing ambience. Directions to the workshop were clear so it was easy for me to find. I would recommend a workshop with Heather, and am inspired to continue with wet felting."
"Had an excellent and enjoyable afternoon with Heather teaching us about 3D felting. Heather explained everything clearly and in detail. She helped us understand the reasons behind our actions and the properties of wool and how they can affect the end results. We all came away with beautiful felted vessels which will be proudly displayed. I will definitely continue to experiment on my own and mix wet felting techniques with needle felting and embroidery. Highly recommend this course."
"This class was excellent and surpassed all of my expectations. Neither myself or my mum had ever done any felting before and we aren’t particularly artistically inclined. Heather was an excellent teacher and even made cake for us! She talked us through the process of creating the felt as we went, and provided us with everything we needed and every colour of felt under the sun. We were both able to produce a piece of felt that we were happy with thanks to heathers tuition and now have the building blocks to be able to create more. We may book on to the course again, and we would recommend the course to anyone!"
"Wonderful day! Heather is a very welcoming and warm host and bakes cakes that are delicious. All the teas are offered all day long and she gives so much help and information whilst still letting you do your own thing. Definitely came away with the knowledge and excitement to felt more on my own. Which is exactly what you want when you learn a new skill!"
"Fantastic workshop. Helen is a great host and teacher. Friendly and informative. The morning session flew by and yet we all came away with very successful felt ‘paintings’. I would love to do a follow on session or course to develop my skill."
"Absolutely loved Heather’s tabletop 3D wet felting workshop. The whole experience from start and finish was serene and inspirational. Heather is a very knowledgeable teacher with a really calm and clear approach. In addition to teaching us how to felt, she also baked a delicious almond chocolate cake - and flapjacks too - and allowed the workshop to run over time so we could all get to the finish line with our pieces. Thank you Heather! :)"
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"What a lovely way to spend a Saturday. Heather is so knowledgeable and easily adapted to teaching a complete novice (me) and someone who had felted several times before. I created two pieces that I still can't quite believe I made myself. Covid restrictions were careful considered. Plentiful cups of tea were supplied and the homemade cake delicious!!"
"I attended this wet felt class and I enjoyed it a lot! Heather was very friendly and welcoming! She’s clearly very talented and knowledgeable about the craft and gave clear instructions/tips when teaching me about it! I would definitely attend another class!"
"I have enjoyed the felting online course very much and am pleased with my first pebble. The instructions in the video show a great depth of knowledge, they are very detailed; so it's easy to follow & get a good result.
This course has expanded my creative practice & inspired me to explore felting further in other creative formats. I can definitely recommend to all and especially people who want to try different materials & learn new techniques."
"This was a really informative and enjoyable workshop.
I had done other felting workshops before but I’m confident this would be also be suitable for complete beginner. I was guided through a range of techniques and was able to complete a picture working alongside Heather in the second half of the video. I’d suggest not starting with a design but pausing in the middle to assemble it once you’ve seen the various ways this can be achieved. I came away with the understanding of how to make further pieces on my own and feel inspired to keep going!
"I can't rate the fabulous service from Heather at Purr and Wag It highly enough. I bought the wet felted vessels package as a gift for my sister-in-law and Heather answered my initial email enquiry within minutes! I was able to choose colours, delivery preferences and add a message, which Heather popped on a gift tag. The materials were gift wrapped and sent direct to my sister-in-law. Heather emailed me, complete with photos of everything beautifully gift wrapped, to confirm it had been sent. I'm sure she's going to love it! Thank you Heather for such super, personal service."

I look forward to hearing from your sister-in-law.

"Heather sent all the materials needed in plenty of time and clearly labelled. She had the online tutorial set up really well, so that we could watch her hands working as well as see her face as she talked us through. We got several pebbles made during the workshop, with lots of material left over to try more at home. She was patient and inclusive and I thoroughly enjoyed learning from her. Thank you."
Purr & Wag It, Tabletop Workshops responded:
" Thank you Victoria!
Inclusivity is a big reason for me keeping my workshops, whether in person or live on line, small.
Looking forward to the opportunity of working with you again.
"I very much enjoyed learning to make felt pebbles with Heather. She was a great teacher and the pace of the class was really good. I was really pleased with the techniques I learnt and the pebbles I made . I thought Heather explained everything really well and she was very helpful . I would definitely recommend this workshop. Thankyou Heather."
