Needle-felting course with FURZIE - Forge Mill Needle Museum, Redditch



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 each choose what 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 animals you would all like to make, so I can bring the right colour wools. The course runs from 10am to 4.30pm and is held in a private meeting room in the Visitor Centre. Parking is available and lunch is included. Courses are also available at other venues around the country. For more information, click on "More from this maker" below.
