What people have said about about Calonwlân Felt:
''We were a group of 10 (6 adults and 4 x 10-13yr olds) at the Penquoit Centre in Pembrokeshire. The day was less technical than I expected, and I was amazed at the beautiful and varied creations that everyone made. 4 layers of wool took a long time to 'massage' into felt but the result was worth the effort. Sarah was easily able to cope with us all, and gave us the individual attention we needed. She was particularly good with the younger ones! Thank you Sarah. I am enthused to try it again sometime.''
''I have been on both basic felting and 3D felting course and thoroughly enjoyed them. I even came away with a beret that looked like a beret! Sarah is extremely patient and very knowledgeable. Had a brilliant time! Thank you.''
''I attended the nuno felting course and it was a wonderful day. Sarah provided a wide selection of materials . At each stage of the process Sarah gave us a demonstration of the technique. The day provided just the right amount of tuition and free time to allow us to develop our projects. The results were a wonderful array of items in the most beautiful colourways. I left the course wanting to go on and explore this felting method further. I am definitely looking out for future courses taught by Sarah'''
''We approached Sarah to support with a creative session for our team as we were looking for an activity that would promote discussion, team ethos and relationship development in an informal way. The session met all our requirements and was thoroughly enjoyable- as an added benefit it is great to go away with a quality piece of artwork which you have created yourself and the best thing is that you don’t need to have artistic ability to be able to create a wonderful piece of felting! It gave us opportunities to vent frustrations as there is a lot of elbow grease required but also to have time to reflect and discuss while we were felting. If you are looking for a hands on, creative team event we would not hesitate to recommend ‘Calon Wlan’ and Sarah. ''

''I had never felted before and was keen to see if it would be possible to felt my own alpacas fleeces, Sarah was very encouraging and helpful and I did manage to make a lovely piece which I am thrilled with. In all it was a super day with like minded people and a great teacher, I would recommend any of Sarah's courses.''
'' I took part in one of Sarah's workshops. I thoroughly enjoyed the day and came away with a finished article. Her approach is enlightening and inspiring. I would recommend her courses to anyone with an interest in felt and textiles.''
''I had a wonderful day. The venue, weather, company and tuition were all excellent! Sarah is an extremely good teacher, very friendly and helpful, and the number of participants (6) ensured that we were all able to get Sarah's help when we needed it. I felt that I learned a lot and look forward to attending more of Sarah's courses in the future.''
''A really enjoyable day. Sarah`s passion for all things felt is infectious! She is a very patient teacher who provides support and encouragement every step of the way. Sarah brought a fantastic selection of wool and we were very much like children in a sweet shop trying to decide on our colours ! Everyone on the course was really friendly and it was great to see all of the finished articles. Some wonderful hats from the more experienced attendees and a fab selection of bags of many colours from the rest of us. I would thoroughly recommend Sarah`s workshops and will definitely be joining her again.''
''I really enjoyed the course and learnt a lot. Sarah is very easy going and a good teacher. Everyone else on the course was friendly and it was great to spend a day with like minded people.''
''A great introduction to felting with clear instructions and explanations, plenty of samples for inspiration and friendly company. I've been wanting to have a go for ages and now want to do more! Thanks.''
''I thoroughly enjoyed this workshop. Sarah gave us a great introduction to the process of nuno felting. She gave us a demonstration of the technique and provided us with a wide and beautiful range of materials. We were then let loose with Sarah keeping a watchful and encouraging eye. I came away having had a great day, learnt a new skill, made new friends and a beautiful scarf. I would definitely sign up for another workshop and recommend to anyone.''
