"I came to your Song Thrush felting course on Saturday with Cecily Kate and it was the most marvellous day! The course tuition was incredible, informative and imaginative.

The instructions were well explained and easy to follow despite it being a complicated bird to recreate and the resulting thrushes were fantastic. I was not expecting to be able to create such a wonderful specimen myself but with Cecily Kate’s techniques and encouragement, I surprised myself.

And to top it all the lunch and refreshments were amazing!  I had a thoroughly enjoyable day in such a peaceful and calm setting. I will definitely be back".
