Workshop: Needle Felting

08 September 10:00

image005Spend a day needle felting to create wonderfully colourful animals using whisper soft, un-spun sheep’s wool.  You will discover hoe, working with a barbed felting needle, you can knit the fibres together to produce delightful 3-D figures – and none of that messy wet wool felting business!

Dry felting or needle felting is a quick way to make a whole ‘zoo’ of animals from pigs and penguins to robins and gold finches, and chirpy squirrels.  You can make a mini version of your pet dog or cat.

Price includes refreshments plus all of the materials you need to create your animal and you will go home with a completed piece.  Please bring your own lunch.

This course is ideal for beginners and improvers alike, and for anyone who would like to make more than conventional knitting with wool and yarn.
