Oh my word! I went along as a complete novice (with some trepidation!) and thanks to Virginia’s expertise, knowledge and guidance I came away with something that I can now confidently present to a very dear friend as a 70th birthday gift!
Virginia offers clear demonstrations and provides everything that is needed (including hospitality!) on top of her expert tuition... if you are looking for something to whet any latent appetite for creativity, then this is a must!
Thank you Virginia; I’m afraid I shall be back for more! 👌🏽

Three of us booked a workshop as a 50th birthday present - it was a great way to spend the morning. We nattered away, not believing that we would actually produce anything worth having on a wall in such a short time. How wrong we were! Thanks to Virginia's excellent teaching, patience and sense of humour, we all took home a wet felt picture we were glad to put on show. Thank you!

Once again I had a really enjoyable time learning this addictive new skill. A clear initial demonstration was followed by knowledgeable encouragement and guidance and the provision of a wide range of fantastically coloured wools that inspired and enabled the completion of a needle felted picture that I can't wait to frame and hang on my wall. A relaxing, friendly and enjoyable morning. Thank you Virginia.

Thank you Virginia for an amazing and inspiring morning! I produced my first wet felting picture under your guidance and am delighted. Your workshop was friendly, informative, fun and sooo creative. I felt relaxed enough to go with the flow and enjoy being in a creative space. Your expertise and workshop was just fabulous! See you on the needle felting course next.

I had a fantastic morning. Virginia was very welcoming and generous with her expertise. She gently guided us through the process of creating a picture using wet felting techniques. Even though I was a complete novice, thanks to Virginia's encouragement and advice, I produced a picture I was very pleased with. I am looking forward to trying out needle felting next week. I highly recommend this course - Virginia is an inspiring, friendly and knowledgeable tutor.

I had a fantastic morning learning to wet felt with Virginia and I was amazed that at the end of it I had an actual picture! Virginia was a very patient tutor who gave clear instructions and was happy to demo anything I was stuck on. She really inspired me to continue with this craft and her set of instructions and tips for where to go for materials/supplies has been invaluable. I would absolutely recommend this course to anyone!

I have attended Virginia's wet felting class twice now as I enjoyed it so much first time round.
The morning flies by and it's amazing what you can achieve with Virginia's tuition and enthusiasm.
I can highly recommend this course to others.

I thoroughly enjoyed my glass painting day. I still can hardly believe that I arrived as a complete novice and departed with a two glass paintings that were of an acceptable standard. I can't wait to attend another glass painting day. Many thanks to Virginia.

Three generations of the family attended a needle felting workshop.. Virginia gave us a clear and simple demonstration. Virginia made us feel at ease and was full of encouragement a helpful directions regarding composition and colours. The time flew by, we found it hugely enjoyable and all three came away with a completed picture. We will be back to do the Wet Felting course.

I had a great time attending Virginia's glass painting workshop. As a complete beginner, I was so happy to come away with a completed glass votive and hanging leaded glass piece.
Being able to chose the design, you end up with a bespoke handmade creation - hopefully the first of many, as this craft is very addictive!
Thank you again Virginia (and Pauline)

Both my mum and I really enjoyed this course, as complete beginners we were really amazed with how much we achieved. Both of us going home with beautiful works of art and a new addictive craft. Virginia was great, I highly recommend this course it is both fun, informative and an absolute bargain. Had a wonderful time! Thank you Virginia

I attended Virginias wet felting course a complete beginner. We started with a demonstration then straight into creating our own piece. Virginia was informative, encouraging and very knowledgeable about this addictive craft. I thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience and cannot recommend enough! Thank you again and can't wait to attend another of Virginia's courses.

Great. Very friendly and helpful. Learnt, and achieved, a lot in the short time I was there. Was not rushed out at the end, enjoyed myself and I'm going back for another similar course. Thank you.
Lynne - - #10141
Simple , straight forward demonstration, then quickly down to work with constant help & encouragement. A wide variety of materials to work with allowing a satisfying piece of work to be produced in a short period of time. A lovely work space.
Thank you Virginia.

Thanks so much to Virginia for the extra effort she went to arrange a really excellent 50th birthday wet felting session for us four companions. It was such fun, and we were overwhelmed to come away with a completed project. The pace was good and everything we needed was provided. A great range of resources to choose from and a relaxed setting. Lovely hospitality and a great way to spend a Saturday morning. I've never done anything like this before, have no particular ability and came away with something I was secretly (well not now) proud of.
thanks again, I'll be back!
Lorraine - - #9051
Massively exceeded my expectations. I had no ability whatsoever but with Virginia's help I produced a completed piece of work, which so impressed my husband he had it framed. Can't wait for the next course.
Excellent instruction, lots of inspiration and quality materials to work with.

Fantastic workshop - lots of freedom to get to know this addictive technique but skilled guidance when requested. Virginia provides plenty of inspiration and all the tools so within a couple of hours I had the basis for my lavender field picture ready to embellish at home. Hugely enjoyable!

Great fun doing needle felting in September. 3 of us on course. Loads of materials, helpful direction on colours and perspective, images to work from. Delighted that in 2 hours managed a half decent picture. Great value too!

I attended this course a couple of weeks ago. Virginia was an excellent Tutor - she gave clear demos / explanations, and all materials required were provided. A relaxed atmosphere added to the mix and greatly helped my first introduction to the art of wet felting, and warm hospitality on top made this a thoroughly enjoyable and worthwhile experience. I completed my picture, and came away with a lovely sense of achievement as well as a set of instructions which will be invaluable as I try another one at home. I heartily recommend this course to others who may be wanting a new avenue for their creativity.
