Needle felted birds in Hebden Bridge



Discover how to make a colourful, stylised funky bird in this new course using just a felting needle and delicious coloured wool fibres. This afternoon class is especially suitable for complete beginners to needle felting. Your bird can be all one colour or mixed colours, based on a real-life bird or a fantasy made up one. Learn how to make a woolly beak and some eyes to bring your bird to life. You can make a bird that is sitting down or you might want to add wings and maybe a ribbon so it can fly or some little legs. Private bespoke workshops are available for families and friends in my studio. From two people upwards. Please get in touch to discuss possibilities.
