About the Course
Fibre artist Carla Taylor creates contemporary sustainable wool sculptures inspired by wildlife and the British Countryside. She has a studio, the Mousehole Woolery, in the heart of Dorset. She enjoys passing on her skills to others through her very popular needled felting workshops here at Fisherton Mill.
Carla will guide you step by step through the basic techniques of needle felting as well as sharing lot of tips and tricks that she has learnt along the way as well as her love and passion for local Dorset and British wool.
By the end of the workshop you will have created your own vintage bear out of beautiful wool ready for you to take home or, if you can part with them, to give to someone as a special gift.
This workshop is suitable for both beginners or those with some experience of needle felting. The price of the workshop includes all materials and a needle felting kit, that you get to keep, take home and carry on creating with. If you would like to finish your vintage bear off in style by mounting it on a vintage cotton reel then please feel free to either bring along your own or there will be some available on the day to purchase.
A fun, creative and inspiring day with friendly, like minded people!
