About the Course
This needle felting course is ideal for beginners. I will teach you the techniques to make your own special pet to take home. Remember to bring a photo of the friend you would like to copy. I will explain and show the processes from shearing of the sheep to felting the item. You will be able to try out carding and combing of the shearings to spinning the wool yourself. Various different types of wool will be available for you to practice with. We will discuss dying wool with natural and artificial dyes
