Christmas Robin Needle Felting Workshop - Saturday 2nd December 2017
This item is currently out of stock.
Needle felting is a fascinating craft and this workshop is the perfect introduction for any beginner – and a great day out for those with a little experience. And, as this workshop is one of our festive workshops, it has a fantastically festive theme!
If you have ever felted your favourite woollen jumper by accidentally putting it in the wash, you are already familiar with the felting process! When wool is agitated, it sticks together, creating a solid fabric. Dry needle felting mimics that process, but instead of agitating the wool with hot water, you are using a needle – making it possible to make not just 2D but 3D objects. On this workshop you will learn the techniques required to make not one but two beautiful Christmas robins; one standing and one to hang in your Christmas tree.
Your experienced tutor will guide you through the making process, sharing her knowledge and experience of needle felting along the way. Your two robins will make the most gorgeous decorations, to be treasured for years. You will also of course leave with the skills to make more - perfect for the gifting season.
One of the many joys of needle felting is that you can easily add your own individual touches. Your tutor will offer top tips on how you can tweak your colour choices to make bluetits, greenfinch and other garden birds - all using the same techniques. This workshop really will be a creative and crafty day!
The workshop will run from 10.00am until 4.00pm. As with all of our workshops, there will be a pause for lunch, which is provided.
