Inspired by the autumn colours of the British countryside you will learn how to create pumpkins, acorns, autumn leaves, fungi, conkers using a beautiful array of wool that can then be transformed into either a garland, wreath or to decorate your home with to give it that cosy autumn feel or wear as an autumn brooch!

Tutor Information
Carla Taylor creates contemporary sustainable 3D wool sculptures inspired by the animals and landscape of the British countryside and coastline using the technique of needle felting. Needle felting involves using barbed needles of various sizes to repeatedly stab and sculpt wool fibres together, building layers of wool, transforming the fleece in to a felted work of art! Carla likes to work closely with local Dorset farmers promoting the use of local and British wool and will often refer to conservation issues within her sculptures.

Refunds are not available on this booking. Start dates may be amended on request.
