Contact course provider
About the Course
Join us in this fantastic in Cardiff for a needle felting workshop, making a 3D bird. Suitable for all levels, and for all ages above 11 years old..
We will be using and learning about native wool, and using barbed needles to sculpt it into the shape of your favourite garden bird. I will have resources available for reference, but please do bring books or photographs too if you wish.
We will break at 12.30 for lunch, please bring along your lunch, or pop to the onsite cafe.
All materials, needles, wool and tools are provided. There is usually the opportunity to purchase a kit if you wish to continue needle felting at home.
These little sculptures will be made entirely from wool, with a core wool base and some wire to strengthen the limbs. They are shaped, sculpted and formed using specialist needles that have a row of tiny barbs that fuse the fibres together.
I will teach you about traditional and modern techniques of felt-making, where your wool is from, and the stories behind our fleece.
With tuition, encouragement and some giggles along the way, you will be able to take home your complete creation!
Needle felting kits will also be available following the workshop if you wish to purchase one for yourself or a friend.
