Needlefelt Robin - Christmas gift or tree dec - Childwall Liverpool £35

Christmas tree decorations


A creative workshop with Liverpool based Textile Artist Catherine Carmyllie in this gorgeous attic well ventilated and bright spacious studio. Have a Christmas shop while here - above a quirky gift shop.

Needle felting is a relaxing and magical process. Catherine has over 20 years of textile experience and will guide you through each step to create a base, blend wool colours and techniques for using the different sizes of needles. Plenty examples and with enough time you can create a Robin to have at home as decoration or to give as handmade presents. Choose a simple method to begin if you prefer (a hanging bauble type robin) or go straight to a mid level project with wings, tail, copper wire legs and wood base. Choose to accessorise with a crown, bow tie, top hat, champagne cork, red berries, or Santa hat!

WARNING - needlefelting is addictive....

All techniques are suitable for complete beginners or those who felted a little before and want a refresh or to see a different approach. Age 14 upwards. Catherine has plenty workshop experience and will share different techniques. Make this as difficult or easy as you like. All equipment and materials provided along with tea coffee - and Quality Street (or equivalent xmas party snax). Catherine will bring a 'shop' on the day - you can buy her hand made gifts as Christmas presents - or buy some extra needlefelt kits or materials to continue your new hobby at home.

Group size may vary depending restrictions at the time. Parking free in surrounding streets. Please note the space has a loo - upstairs. Room is fully covid compliant and well ventilated - if Covid says we should be 1 student per table we can do that - otherwise we can group tables together to be more social.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
