This workshop is suitable for complete beginners and more experienced needle-felters alike. Needle-felting is a wonderful skill to learn - it's a real 'kitchen table' craft that can be done almost anywhere, needing very few tools.
We'll start the day by needle-felting a small practice piece to get some skills in hand, then move on to needle-felt a sculptural bear over a simple wire frame, building shape and adding colour with muted un-dyed wools, and with dyed merino.
