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.

Enjoyable, educational and good value for money Reviewed by: Victoria Felt Hat Making reviewed on 08th May 2013 (5 stars)

on 28th Jan 2013

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.
