Needle Felted Creatures For Beginners



Felt is a textile that is produced by matting and knotting natural fibres together. This can be done using a wet or dry method. Needle felting is the dry method of creating 3D felt objects, or further embellishing flat pieces of work. Using special barbed needles and carded wool (from local sheep) you will learn the techniques behind creating a lovely bee brooch and then have a chance to make a little project of your own choice.

We will start by learning about the tools and equipment used in needle felting. We will have lots of samples of wool and fibre to help us learn about texture and form. Each attendee will make a small sample to practise using the needles before we start on a felted creatures. You will be shown how to felt different shapes and how to join those shapes together.

You will leave the course having learnt a new craft skill. If you fancy, you can also buy a felt kit and wool directly from us to continue at home.

This course is suitable for complete beginners to needle felting or those wishing to brush up their skills. As needle felting involves pushing very sharp needles into felt we recommended attendees are 12 and over (under 16 must be accompanied by an adult).

This is a 2 hr course and will include hot and cold beverages and lots of lovely biscuits.
