"A wonderful felting course in a wonderful location with wonderful people. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this very enlightening course. This was my very first try at needle felting - the tuition was excellent as were the refreshments and baked pastries … however, beware!…once you've been on this course you'll get the felting bug. Very much looking forward to visiting, learning and felting on my next chosen course at this venue.


You truly won't be disappointed - enjoy. "
