Needle felting course with FURZIE, National Waterways Museum, Gloucester



The needle-felting courses are held on Sabrina 5 - a WWII converted barge, moored in Gloucester Docks. A lovely space with disabled access and all facilities onboard. Needle felting 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. Your model will be 5 to 7 inches tall/long.
