A feedback from one of the participants after this wet felt class:

Thank you for such an enjoyable wet felting class. We were all different ages and experience, but you managed to help everyone and shared your expertise with us. It was a lovely atmosphere, we had fun while learning a new craft and we each went home with a piece of work that we had made on the day.

What a lovely way to learn...looking forward to the next class.
