9Springtime wouldn’t be complete without Easter Bunnies, Fluffy Fledglings and Cuddly Critters. On Saturday 28th March our felting friend, Rosie, will be running a full day workshop which promises to be very relaxed and a lot of fun. So whether you have never felted before or are already a practitioner in need of some new ideas, you can join in this very social day. What you make is entirely up to you and there will be plenty of guidance from Rosie.
We will be using the needle felting technique which involves working with roving, or strands of wool fleece. Using special barbed felting needles, the wool is pierced, along with manual compression, to create the interlocking or matting together of the wool fibres. In this fashion the wool can be sculpted into any form and different textures can be achieved.
What you will need to bring:
Materials are included, but you may wish to bring pictures to use as reference and wool in your choice of colours if you have a specific subject in mind.
Includes delicious lunch and all refreshments
