About the Course
A fun needle felting workshop suitable for beginners, we will make a small felt picture suitable to be framed or a brooch or sheep in a bottle.
You will learn basic skills using merino wool tops and optional finishing with embriodery stitches. Working with a felt background piece you will needle felt your wool onto it to slowly create and build up a landscape picture of your choice.
I will guide you through the process, showing you how to use the tools and materials safely and passing on hints and tips about the design journey.
The workshop is suitable for beginners and your design can be as simple or complicated as you desire.
Higherford Mill in Barrowford is the venue for the workshop, built in 1824 as a weaving and spinning waterpowered mill. Once full of the sound of machinery, now it is a little quieter and houses a collection of varied creatives.
If you are interested in other available dates and there is at least a couple of you please get in touch to arrange one.
