One of the best tourist activities I have participated in!
I would reccomend this workshop to anyone who wants to produce a unique reminder of their time in Riga. Not only is there a chance to choose the view you like best and add personal touches, you are also participating in one of the local traditions. The skill of the feltmaster is clearly evident and she was very good at teaching and coaching you to produce a quality piece. Not only that, she is a lovely person and the conversation and local info from the feltmaster and her helper was great. We had a fun time and a few laughs. The setting at the art cafe is also great! We cannot thank Angela and Aleks enough.

It was so fun and informative, and I ended the day with a beautiful piece of art.

I've always been keen on DIY workshops, but had never done any felting. Thanx to Diana Granta (by the way, her master pieces are museum worth) she had shared her professional secrets and made felting fun. I would highly recommend this workshop for any individual who wants to learn smth new or improve his/her master crafts; to a bunch of friends or family as its great quality time. Diana is friendly and easy going person, who can explain complicated things easy. Thanks to Riga Rocks for perfect event organization, I will gladly join any other of your workshops. You are awesome!

Fantastic and creative atmosphere helped me to learn new things as well as inspired for creativity. Diana had organised a great company and was a really experienced teacher - she told us the insights of wool as a material and then helped create my own wool item. I was happy because with a help from the teacher it turned out great and im sure i learned a new thing that I can try later myself.
