I really enjoyed the tour!
There was a good variety of things to see & the workshops were good. Hungary has an amazing history! Thank you for everything.
If you love to felt and love to travel you should definitely consider joining Flora on one of her tours. So many learning opportunities and sightseeing.
It would have taken my years to learn all I learned on this tour.
Flóra's felt tours to Hungary are wonderful for anyone interested in feltmaking, folk art, meeting artists and making new friends. The instructors and felting workshops were fun and I learned new techniques for my own projects. The country is beautiful and Flóra is super organized so everything is taken care of for the participants. I have been on 2 tours now and looking forward to future trips with Flora!

Flora's Hungarian Felting tours bring together the perfect blend of learning about felting and Hungarian culture. Flora does an outstanding job of connecting the tour group members with skilled artists who are willing to share their techniques with the tour members.
I throughly enjoyed the East Hungary Felting Tour. It was a great mix of site seeing, learning felting techniques and spending time in a lovely community of felters! I feel I got a taste of Hungary with time in Budapest, smaller cities and towns, organic farm, and the Shepards Festival. So many rich experiences, interesting foods and wonderful friendly people!
I don’t travel much so the South Hungary Tour was a big adventure for me. I felt well looked after, completely safe and can honestly say I enjoyed every aspect of the tour. I would recommend a felt tour without hesitation.

On Flóra’s Felt Tour we visited remote villages and beautiful ancient cities. The Felting classes were well presented and challenging. Flóra does a wonderful job of finding interesting side trips and balancing group activities with free time.
There is no equal to traveling, doing what you love, meeting people from different places like England, Nebraska, and Australia! Best of all to be guided by a felting teacher who knows about the country and speaks the language. Flora is above all an artist, but also loves to share the country she came from. I learned about and enjoyed the creative culture of Hungary, not to mention fields and fields of sunflowers!
The tour was such a fabulous experience - not just the workshops but learning about Hungary and its culture was delightful and unforgettable.

This trip was an experience of a lifetime. I learned so much that was new to me in the felting workshops while also getting to know the felt artists - and saw Hungary in a way that only a native speaker and citizen could provide. Flora picked the ideal places for us to visit, the most authentic food, and created a Hungarian tour that is unsurpassed. She cared very much about our learning, experience and comfort. I’m eager to go on the next tour with her.
A way to feel and felt your way through Hungary, with the help of Flóra and her highly professional and friendly team of instructors. It is the real thing! I've done it twice so far. Still counting....

The Hungary Felt tour allowed me to improve my felt-making skills through hands-on workshops led by skilled artisans. As a bonus I was able to be a tourist in Hungary learning about Hungarian history, traditions, and current culture. The whole experience was expertly planned and managed by Hungarian-born feltmaker Flóra Carlile-Kovács!
This Felting Tour with Flóra Carlile-Kovács was a complete cultural experience. We learned new Felting techniques from Master Felt Artists who shared their expertise. We stayed in unique hotels and lodges, ate special Hungarian food, attended several Festivals, and visited castles and museums. A complete experience for my first tour to Hungary.

I can't recommend this tour enough. This stunning tour offered superb tuition from renowned and accomplished felt artists. A wonderful glimpse into social history and an opportunity to work and skill share with like minded travellers. Led and arranged by the most generous host.

What a wonderful tour. I feel as though I came to know Hungary and its historic felting traditions as well as learning felting techniques from some of the country's contemporary felting artists. Hungary is a fascinating country with a rich heritage and delicious cuisine.
Thank you, Flora.
