Winter Hares needle-felting workshop
Contact course provider
About the Course
Learn to needle-felt using the core wool method and barbed needles, to create one of our most iconic creatures - and make a hare!
During this workshop we will be using, and finding out about, Welsh and British fleece, in their natural and hand-dyed colours, and learning how to needle felt a 3D hare.
The barbed needles are used to fuse the fibres and sculpt the wool into your own shape and style.
You are advised to bring in photos to work from, or browse through the resources available.
This workshop is suitable for all abilities, including beginners. Emma will guide you through the techniques and you will be able to take home your completed needle-felt hare at the end of the workshop.
All the materials are available for you to choose from, and cost £10 per person.
There will also be the opportunity to purchase a kit to go home and continue to needle felt!

I had never done any felting before and was a little apprehensive seeing the amazing work of others but the course was fantastic, Emma is a great teacher, very patient but inspirational too. The class size is just right and the venue (Bakers Table Talgarth) provided refreshments and a delicious lunch. I bought materials on the day and have continued with felting as a hobby.

I've never tried any kind of felting before - a complete beginner in every sense of the word. The workshop was brilliant, so much choice of materials in incredible colours, the day was extremely well thought out, accommodating beginners like me, yet providing a setting where more experienced felters could also get the most from it. Emma managed to find that perfect balance of offering tuition, guidance and help, or letting us guide ourselves when we needed/wanted to. It was a very relaxing and creative day, fab venue and a nice group of people; allowing everyone to have some 1-1 time with Emma as well. Lunch was homemade and drinks were available all day, it was very informal, allowing you to take a break when needed and take in the stunning views of the surrounding area. I loved the workshop and was so proud of what I managed to achieve with my day, definitely worth it and would highly recommend Emma as a teacher and artist.

Not having tried wet felting before this was a great opportunity to try. Course is suited to complete beginners as well as those who are more experienced and just want some creativity space and time. Great venue, loads of space and gorgeous materials to play with. Extremely well hosted on lunch and refreshments, and the group size of 5 meant we could get to know fellow work shoppers, and all could benefit from Em's time, with group and individual tuition. Loved it, highly recommended.
