Description

At Cowshed Creative in the Lake District we run an extensive range of art, craft and heritage workshops in our beautifully converted art studio. Felting is highly addictive and can lead to compulsive creativity! Celebrate the songsters of the sky and come along and make a needle felted song bird in fleece. Textile artist and teacher, Gill Ferguson will guide you throughout the process with demonstrations and helpful hints to help bring your bird to life. Join us for a relaxed and sociable day. You will be amazed by what you create. Gillian Ferguson studied textile design at the University of Ulster and worked as a textile designer in the textile print industry for 15 years. She now works as a surface pattern designer and art educator from her studio in Silverdale. Gill has extensive experience of a wide range of felting techniques, including wet felt, Nuno and Needle felting and has delivered workshops in a number of different venues. This workshop will be at Cowshed Creative, based in a traditional converted Lakeland barn at Browfoot Farm. The art studio is a stunning open plan space with plenty of room to wander outside and take inspiration from the amazing Lakeland landscape and environment of the peaceful Kentmere valley. Make it a special break and stay on the farm. All our tutors are carefully selected professionals and experts with extensive teaching experience.
