Chrystal said; "Jane is a fantastic, friendly and fun tutor and the course was brilliant. I learnt so much from her and we got along brilliantly. The course is great for anyone from total beginners to those with more advanced skills. The small class numbers allow her to focus on you as an individual and give you lots of tips and pointers to help you on your felting journey"
Olwyn said; "What a fabulous day spent learning a new skill and unleashing my creative side. Jane’s patience, enthusiasm and wonderful use of colour are inspiring and, because the groups are small, you get lots of individual attention too. The riverside studio is in such a perfect setting and we enjoyed a very tasty lunch in the garden whilst our first pieces of finished samples dried on the line."
"What an amazing place this is to learn the ins & outs of felting!! The surroundings encourage creativity and Jane is an absolute wizard in helping you produce amazing pieces!! Jane's instruction and guidance is excellent and you leave the workshop feeling accomplished and wanting to do more! Our workshop was amazing and the lunch and treats we had all day was superb!! I cannot recommend Fabulous felting enough. We had a great day and I will definitely be back!!"
"I received excellent tuition and felt free to be as creative as I wanted in a relaxed and comfortable environment. The time flew by, as we chatted and laughed as we therapeutically created not just one but three different types of wool felting. Plus I got to take my beautiful samplers home with me. It was a wonderful experience and one that I will cherish forever.
I'm so very pleased with myself and it was a pleasure to be a student at Fabulous Feltings 💙"
Claire said; "My daughter and I attended a course with Jane for the day to gain an insight into wet felting, and what an amazing day we had! Jane was so welcoming, knowledgeable and patient in teaching us this incredible art form. We came away with 3 different wet felting pieces that we had created independently under the guide and expertise of Jane. As if learning this was not enough, Jane also provided us with a yummy lunch and treats throughout the day. I would highly recommend Jane's courses and would attend in the future again"
Catrin said; "I had a fantastic day with Jane at her felting workshop. Lovely relaxed day with great ideas and teaching, especially being a non creative, Jane put us at ease and had lots of materials and resources (and patience!) got us to get stuck in with. The day flew by! Wonderful riverside location, great for us coming from both West, South West and South Wales. Beautiful lunch too! Great value for money, great day out and with wonderful company! I have also bought my wedding wrap from Jane for my forthcoming winter wedding and I cannot wait to show it off"
Karen said; "My daughter and I went on Jane's course in September to celebrate my birthday and what a huge success the day turned out to be. The setting is glorious, the food delicious and Jane was a warm, friendly and inspiring teacher. In fact we have both taken up felting with enthusiasm and have had some successful results! On the day itself we made three pieces of work under Jane's guidance and unlike other craft courses I've attended we took home things to feel proud of. The inevitable 'mishaps' that all beginners have were rectified in a way that didn't make you feel like an idiot and contributed to the relaxed atmosphere. All in all I would recommend this course for those who are looking to find a new craft skill or just want a fun day that offers a sense of well being. We intend to take another course later this year to further our new skills".
