Needle felted hares at the Birchcliffe Centre, Hebden Bridge

Hares made by student's


Discover how to design and make a large seated or laying down dry felted Hare using just a felting needle and wool fibres in natural colours. The needle felting process I teach for this course is sculptural and uses no wire armature. Each hare will be an individual. Add big floppy ears and glass eyes to add character and life. See photos for wonderful samples of hares in a variety of poses made by previous students on the workshop. Suitable for beginners as well as those who have already tried needle felting.

This is a full day workshop with Josephine fibre and mixed media artist/ maker in her beautiful light, warm, spacious studio at the Birchcliffe Centre a converted chapel in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire.

Never having needle felted before I hadn’t appreciated what time it takes to produce all the marvellous creatures for sale in shops.
Had a really enjoyable day learning a new skill and making a hare that I am very proud of.
Jo was very patient and encouraging, really good
Tutor . As only 2 of us on the course we really had 5 star tuition.
