About the Course
We will use natural coloured wool to needle felt a Dog and then blend wools to add details and colour to create our beautiful animals. We will explore different types of needles as we felt the various parts of the animal. A selection of models and images will be available on the day but if you have an image you would like to have a try at creating then please bring them with you, we cannot guarantee to be able to make every breed as fibres and some dog face shapes will not be possible on the day. Please get in touch if you are not sure or wish to confirm the breed of dog. This is not made using armature wire so some positions are not going to be possible.
For those new to felting this is a great project and will allow you to create a unique character. If you have felted before then you will be able to refine the details and make your character even more distinct. Whatever your level we will support you at each stage and guide you in the process

What's included in the price?
We provide all the material you need for the day but additional materials are also available to purchase on the day.
We provide refreshments of tea and coffee and cold drinks through the day. If you have milk allergies please bring a small supply of your own. Bring your own lunch, we can refrigerate as needed but we ask for no seafood as I have a severe allergy.
My Mum and I had a fabulous day with Rachel and Rhian - our first attempt at needlefelting. It was totally absorbing and we produced two super hares - way beyond what we thought would be possible as beginners. Both Rachel and Rhian are lovely, warm and friendly - and great teachers with lots of patience and tips on developing skills. The course was amazing value and the Community Hall in Gorseinon is a really good venue - a nice light space with all the facilities you need - including free parking. I can't recommend the course highly enough and look forward to signing up on another course soon. Hasta la vista Rachel & Rhian - we'll be back!

Response from Heartfelt 2 Inspire:Thank you so much Cheryl! It was a pleasure to meet both you and your mum. You both worked hard on the day and deserved the hares you had at the end of the day. It is good to be able to laugh and share with each other throughout the day.
