“I was very, very pleased with the course in all ways - the location, your style and level of support, the techniques and materials we used, the pace and rate of progress and I was delighted with my output, a beautiful little doll who I called Willow. I enjoyed every minute of both sessions and it was a pleasure to be taught by a professional creative of your standing. I'm just about to start my 5th one who will be called Fern. So far I have made, Willow, Bracken, Flora and Autumn and I can't tell you how much pleasure they have given both to me and to the recipients. I now have my doll making skills for life and look forward to doing many more of them in the years to come.
Thank you for everything”
Sandie (Doll Making, January 2012)

“Sophie's making slippers workshop is fun and inclusive of all abilities - She is a craftsperson who is also naturally gifted at showing and encouraging others to learn to make things by hand too - a rare combination. It had been many years since I last held a crochet hook and through her inspiring teaching I was able to make a pair of slippers for my new grandchild which has given me a great sense of achievement. Thank you Sophie!” Joanna, Sheepskin Slippers Workshop February 2012

Needle Felt Garden Birds

Introduction to Needle Felting – Make a sweet garden bird – with Sophie Buckley @ Mother Goose, Nailsworth

Look out for needle felt dogs and festive decorations too! Using just wool and a special needle you will sculpt and carve the wool bit by bit until – like magic – a creature appears. As well as your beautiful bird, you will get a needle and sponge to take home and carry on your new hobby.

£30 including felting needle, sponge mat and wool tops & refreshments
Places limited. Held at: Mother Goose, 10a Market Street, Nailsworth, Gloucestershire, GL6 0BX
