Create your own unique needle felted hare using Kingcombe's own fleeces on this fun one day workshop

Taught by  Carla Taylor

Mon 14 Sep 2015

Needle felting involves using barbed felting needles to repeatedly stab wool fibres together to form solid 3 dimensional forms. On this one day workshop Carla will teach you the different techniques of building individual base shapes, joining them together using only felting needles and wool and then adding layers to finish your sculpture.  On this workshop we will focus on creating stunning felted hares, so why not come along and learn to make your very own unique piece inspired by the British Countryside.

 All materials are included and no previous experience is necessary.
