About the Course
Needlefelting is a wonderful craft, even if you don't think you are creative, the wool somehow inspires you to create. The course is suitable for beginners or those with some experience of felting already. You will be taught the basics of needle-felting, how to make a wire armature structure for your animal and how to sculpt with wool.
For the course cost you can choose which animal you would like to make (within reason!), but pick something you love and you are familiar with how it looks, bring photos and especially a picture of the animal from the side view, so that we can get the proportions right - I will help you with this, don't worry about it! Just let me know what animal you would like to make, so I can bring the right colour wool.
Courses also available at a number of other venues across the Midlands, or in your own home. For more information, click on "More courses run at this centre" below.

My nieces and I spent a wonderful day on a ‘Felting with Furzie’ course. Everything about the day was good; Michelle is a first class teacher and made the difficult seem easy.
We are all very proud of our efforts and plan to do another course soon.
