Needlefelting is a wonderful craft, even if you don't think you are creative, the wool somehow inspires you to create. The course is suitable for beginners or those with some experience of felting already. You will be taught the basics of needle-felting, how to make a wire armature structure for your animal and how to sculpt with wool.
The needle-felting course is held in the back room of the inspirational shop From Home in Berkeley High Street. Lunch and refreshments will be provided, as well as wool!
You can choose what animal you would like to make (within reason!), but pick something you love and you are familiar with how it looks, bring photos and especially a picture of the animal from the side view, so that we can get the proportions right - I will help you with this, don't worry about it! Just let me know what animal you would like to make, so I can bring the right colour wool.
Courses also available in Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and elsewhere. For more information, click on "More courses run at this centre" below.
If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

Loved everything about it - perfect venue, course pitched just right, everyone was encouraged and helped to just the right degree. Everyone went home with something that they were absolutely chuffed with and without a clutch of useful, transferable techniques. Excellent value for money and such a lovely way to spend the day. Couldn't fault it! Many thanks, Michelle!
A really fun day, learnt a new Skill with like minded people. Michelle was excellent teacher and very patient with us newbies. Great value for money, all kit provided and beautiful wool and fabulous refreshments also included.
Would thoroughly recommend this class and hope to return in the future.
Furzie or Micheele is a wonderful and patient instructor - generous with equipment, fleece and a lovely lunch, I couldn't have had a better day,
i'm hugely satisfied with all my instruction and look forward to the spring when i hope to return
well done Michelle xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
