“Attended a workshop on 29th September. I had a most wonderful day, thank you so much Christine. Very satisfying working with such lovely colourful wools. We all made our own items and Christine was very patient and encouraging all through. Thank you too Jem who made us a fabulous lunch.”

“This one-day course was most enjoyable. Lots of beautiful colours and an opportunity to make your ideas be expressed in felt. 
I have never made any felt before and I came away with a piece I felt proud of. Creative, relaxing and full of surprises! 
The studio and house are set in a beautiful garden with stunning views. The lunch was delicious and it was good to be creative with others.”
