About your tutor
Sara Masham studied creative Arts as a Bachelor of Education honours degree before starting teaching in 1990. She lived abroad in Norway for four years where she discovered a new creative skill in the form of needle and wet felting. She attended many courses during the four years to learn felting skills from very talented fashion designers and experienced felters from Germany, Denmark, Holland, Norway and USA. Sara has a great passion for felting and looks forward to sharing these skills with you on one of her courses.
