A fun, creative and inspiring day with friendly, like-minded people! Tutor Information Carla Taylor creates contemporary sustainable 3D wool sculptures inspired by the animals and landscape of the British countryside and coastline using the technique of needle felting. Needle felting involves using barbed needles of various sizes to repeatedly stab and sculpt wool fibres together, building layers of wool, transforming the fleece into a felted work of art! Carla likes to work closely with local Dorset farmers promoting the use of local and British wool and will often refer to conservation issues within her sculptures.
