What you have said…

Sarah: Just wanted to say a huge thank you for a fantastic course. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it and learnt a lot. It’s been incredibly rewarding to acquiring a new skill under such encouraging guidance and has given me the confidence to carry on with my felt making journey and investigate further projects after the course. Thank you for your patience, tips and encouragement Louise. Good Luck to everyone else.

Olivia: I’d like to add to the other comments here, and say that I’ve thoroughly enjoyed this course. Your comments and feedback have always been very encouraging and helpful, and it’s been lovely to see the progress made throughout the course. I am sad that the course is coming to an end as I’ve loved every moment.

Sylvia: Being self taught I have learnt a lot from this course. How to make neat edges, that the wools can shrink far more than you think they will and being able to leave the felting and return to it when rested is good to know.

I have a keener awareness and interest in where the different fleeces come from and how they react to felting as well as learning about microns and staple. So yes, this course has been good for me and I have enjoyed reading other people’s comments.

So, thank you Louise for all your hard work and encouraging comments.Samples from DF course - International Feltmakers Association
