"I'd wanted to do this course for ages, so after finally doing it recently I was delighted it was all I'd hoped it would be and more. My job (life!) is very screen based, so I wanted to do something which was opposite to this, to do be practical and use my hands (not just my fingertips typing!!) and produce an item I would love and use.
What I don't think I'd expected was the utter absorption of it - as a complete novice, I had to focus hard and that was so mindful. I felt I could have tacked for hours! Lucy was a superb teacher, explaining the steps and rational for each really clearly. When I got a wobble at the end finishing the felt wool layer, she was very patient and explained techniques in different ways, with suggestions to try, until it "clicked". Then bravo, a beautiful stool!
When I got home my boys asked where I'd bought it, and were surprised when I said I'd made it which was gratifying! Highly commend this course - a most satisfying day. "
" Oh and I am so glad that you did too! You worked so hard & got an absolutely brilliant, beautiful result - & I love the Marine/Pimpernel colourway, you thoroughly deserved to put your (muddy! thanks for the photo!) feet up! Thanks so much, Lucy"
