About the Course
For groups of children aged 8+ needle felting is a great way to provide a creative and fun learning experience that will keep them engaged and focused.
If you would like to do something different for a party, something quiet, calm and not too messy then a needle felting party is perfect!
For birthday parties I will come to your home and keep the party boy/girl and their friends deeply engrossed in a two hour session making a felted animal. If you need somewhere to hold your party, I can help you arrange a suitable venue at an additional cost which will need to be paid at the time of your booking.
I also offer group workshops for school, brownies, guides etc...If you are a group or a school you can book me to visit your location.
All materials and supplies needed
Full support & guidance for each child to make and complete their chosen needle felted sculpture.
Enhanced DBS check and Insurance
What can children make?
Children can make a choice of woodland themed animals based around a polystyrene egg. I can tailor the workshop to your requirements if you have a particular theme in mind.
The workshop takes around 2 hours.
What will they learn?
* How to safely use felting needles
* How the wool ends up from the sheep to the felting table!
* How to felt the wool onto the polystyrene egg
* How to make shapes using their felting needles and other techniques

This was a fantastic workshop for my daughter’s birthday. Communication prior to the day was great, including directions & what to expect.
Elaine ran an absorbing workshop which we all really enjoyed. The instruction was excellent & very encouraging.
We all now have very sweet felted rabbits (as we were able to take home spare wool to add some extra finishing touches) & are keen to try other animals too! Thank you
