About the Course
Needle Felt a masterpiece with ease in just five weeks!
Whether you’re a complete beginner or have some experience, this course gives you the breathing space to plan and create a striking piece of needle felt art that you might not normally find the time to make at home.
You’ll recreate an image of your choice – such as a favourite picture, landscape or animal portrait. There’ll be a wide range of wool colours for you to work with so you can create your piece in glorious varied detail.
With plenty of encouragement and personal guidance from artist Sophie, you’ll quickly feel confident in your ability to complete an artwork that you’ll be proud to hang pride of place, even if you’re not confident at drawing. You’ll work at your own pace, and leave with the skills and experience that’ll ensure you’re able to go on to recreate any needle felt composition you put your mind to.
You can turn any of our courses into a short break by staying in our on site accommodation. When you book a residential package you will get discounted accommodation in our stylish boutique hostel located in the centre of Cirencester in the Cotswolds right next door to New Brewery Arts. Our former 19th Century Cotswold stone brewery barrel store has been beautifully transformed into 21st century accommodation, light and well-appointed with a craftsman’s attention to detail. We offer guest accommodation for up to 43 people over two floors in 14 rooms, with a choice of single, bunk, family and double bedrooms, 12 with en-suite facilities. A ground floor disabled-friendly room is also available. The hostel provides a stylish communal dining and relaxation area, self-catering kitchen, laundry facilities and lockers for your bike. As with all our courses and workshops these are led by experienced tutors and as you will be part of a small group there is plenty of time to focus on you.
