Learn how to make your very doglet from the comfort of your own home, under the tuition of Gretel Parker, who has been a practising needle felt artist since 2008. This workshop is aimed at anyone who wants to try their hand at needle felting, either complete beginners, or with some experience. This pattern was first featured in the popular magazine ‘Mollie Makes’ in 2012. There is a choice of colours - please state which you would like to make.
The doglet you will be making during the live workshop will be quite small, (2-3 inches) to enable a ‘start to finish’ project in the time. I will be working alongside you with my hands on screen most of the time, so that you can see clearly how I work. I will, of course, be able to answer any questions you have throughout.
Gretel Parker is a seasoned workshop holder with many years of experience and the author of ‘Little Needle-Felt Animals’, published by Harper Collins, 2014. She has worked as a freelance pattern designer for the popular craft magazine ‘Mollie Makes’, with three front cover features, as well as other magazines, including ‘Crafty’ and ‘Craft Seller’. Her patterns are also included in ‘Mollie Makes Christmas’, ‘Mollie Makes Birds’ and ‘Mollie Makes Weddings’.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
Your doglet kit contains enough wool for one doglet, pre-threaded beads for eyes and three felting needles. The workshop will run for two and a half to three hours, (dependent on your progress) with an optional break if you wish.
A felting sponge or mat to work on. (A piece of dense foam of any kind will be fine to use). A tape measure or ruler and a medium length needle.
A Zoom account - please familiarise yourself with the basic working if you have never used Zoom before. I will contact you a day beforehand with a password and meeting number.
