Here's what people are saying about their experience at Craft Workshops Beetle Felt Studio
on 14th Feb 2014
I had a super time learning how to make a felt scarf. I had not experienced this type of technique before and found it fascinating. The finished item was lovely. Carol, the lady who ran the course, was inspirational and clearly explained what was needed to be done. I would recommend this course as it was a satisfying and enjoyable experience.

Couldn't even do a slip not when I arrived. At the end of the two hour session I had improved! Looking forward to next two weeks.

I had a great time in a small class with all the materials and guidance needed to make my own unique hat. I chose to make a beret and was able to choose my own colours and create a design to make a hat I absolutely love and wear almost every day. I was so inspired and confident by the end that I bought some additional materials to continue making hats at home. Worth every penny and a great day out.

I thoroughly enjoyed this course and came away having learned new skills and with a unique hat.,Carol is a wonderful teacher kind and supportive.I would certainly recommend her courses to others and will hopefully returning to try some different crafts.
