Needle felted hares at the Birchcliffe Centre, Hebden Bridge



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. Private workshops are available for families and friends in my studio. From two people upwards. Please get in touch to discuss possibilities.
