Needle Felting for Beginners
BOOK HERE £35
In this introduction to needle felting, you’ll be shown the basics of how to create felted structures and mould wool fibres, all while creating your very own needle-felted bird. You’ll be shown step by step how to make the body, wings, tail and head using a felting needle and wool. Then, once that’s been made, we’ll make wire legs, and add the some colour.
At the end of the three to four hour session you’ll be able to take your new felted friend home with you!
