Needle Felting Workshops

  WE ARE UNFORTUNATELY UNABLE TO OFFER THESE CLASSES THIS TERM

                                                 

                                           REFRESHMENTS FREE                   

NEEDLE FELTING WORKSHOPS  

Needle Felting is a process that fuses natural wool fibres together

with a barbed needle

to form a more dense material, i.e. felt.

It is a very therapeutic, satisfying and relatively easy craft, once

you've learnt the skills.

The range of items you can make are limitless.

Just use your imagination and get creating!

We will be making small felt animals.

All tools and materials will be provided for you to borrow or buy.

 

 WET FELTING CLASSES

Wet felting is a way of making art with felt.

It starts with making a background from fibres,

adding water and soap and then, when dry,

adding detail. 

It is rather addictive; you have been warned!
