Dormouse Needle Felting Workshop - Sunday 17th June 2018
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.
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 a rather adorable doormouse. Your day will start with a brief introduction to the craft of needle felting and its many forms. Your experienced tutor will guide you through the making process, sharing her knowledge and experience of needle felting along the way.
Your day will start at 10.00am and conclude at 4.00pm. All the materials and your lunch are provided, as are workshop aprons for you to wear during your day.
As well as completing your dreamy doormouse, you will also of course leave with the skills to make more. With this in mind, additional materials will be available to purchase on the day for the super keen! It really will be a creative and crafty day!
