The final product is yours to take home with you and can be used for anything from serious sketches to absent minded doodles. Bookbinding is hungry work, so there i™s also the option of lunch in the Carousel restaurant after you a€™re done.

What is Ancestor Healing? At Jung Shim we understand that our energy levels can be affected by the lifestyle we lead, our physical environment and emotional patterns. Yet, we also believe that people’s energy can be affected by the history and energy of their family. This we call karma and it is this that Ancestor Healing looks to resolve. We inherit our physical features through our genetic make-up, but in our energy system emotional patterns, memories and health issues can be imprinted and carried forward to future generations. Ancestor healing is a profound and spiritual course offered at Jung Shim to clear inherited energy patterns that can affect our life, wellbeing and relationships. The programme uses energy and sound (vibration) and is rooted in the ancient Eastern practice to respect our lives and those of our ancestors. As increasing numbers of people strive for a healthier and happier life through dietary changes, self-development and spiritual work, people still find they have ailments and negative emotions that they are unable to change. Ancestor Healing can often be the process that helps people to achieve the changes they are looking for and heal their family patterns. Join us for an informative evening on a topic very relevant to our personal lives and to the world today.

Anytime workshop/course: Intro to Felt Making - 2D & 3D

A really interesting and enjoyable course over two evenings. Heather made everything very clear and easy, provided great materials and ensured we all made something we were pleased with. I had never felted anything before but would now like to do more and feel quite confident about starting on my own. I'd also like to do another course with Heather. Highly recommended.

Anytime workshop/course: Intro to Felt Making - 2D & 3D

I loved this course - working with felt is amazing, the colours are beautiful and the end results were much better than I expected. I am not particularly artistic but I produced something I really liked. Heather was very clear and patient and the atmosphere was relaxed and very calming. The location was also great. I now know exactly what to do if I wanted to do felting on my own.

Anytime workshop/course: Intro to Felt Making - 2D & 3D

A really fantastic workshop! Incredibly insightful and taught in a way that made it relaxing and enjoyable. I took so much away from the experience, not only my lovely felted pieces but also the skills and knowledge to continue making at home. There was an abundance of beautifully coloured felts to work with and no short supply of tea and biscuits either. I couldn't have enjoyed myself more and left feeling very inspired.
