Barn Owl needle felting pre recorded video masterclass



Barn Owl pre recorded needle felting masterclass The Barn Owl needle felting masterclass takes you step by step through each stage of making your own handsome free standing Barn Owl (stands at approx 8 to 9 inches tall) This is the video masterclass only and no physical felting pack will be sent to you. Please see my other listing for the complete felting pack with video masterclass. Lessons include: ➡️ building up the core shape of the bird ➡️ making a beak with wool and glue ➡️ making feathers and how to get them super smooth and thin ➡️ how to make functional bird feet that you can use to pose your bird using wire, wool & PVA glue ➡️ how to blend colours When you have made your barn owl you will have learned the skills needed to make bird feet using wire, wrapping wire in wool and sculpting a beak using wool and PVA glue. You will also appreciate the value of making a solid core to your 3D projects and have learned how to create thin pieces of felt to make individual feathers. Who is the masterclass suitable for? Suitable for more confident beginners and those who are needle felters already who want to learn and develop their skills. Are there any special requirements? Good eye sight and somewhere comfortable to work is beneficial. How long will it take to make? This is quite a big project so allow around 6 to 8 hours to make your bird plus time overnight to allow the glue to dry. The step by step lesson style tutorial will enable you to easily pick up from where you left off if you prefer to spend a few days making your owl. Additional info Children aged 11+ can needle felt with supervision from an adult due to the nature of the barbed needles being quite sore should you accidentially poke your finger with one. These are NOT toys, they are decorative ornaments. Keep away from pets too!
