Make your own hand-made fabulous felt decorations for your tree and home including robins, baubles and more on this fun one day workshop

Taught by  Carla Taylor

Sun 22 Nov 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 special festive workshop we will focus on creating stunning decorations including robins, baubles and more.  Perfect for adding that hand-made feel to your home or making great presents.  So why not come along and learn how to make your very own unique decorations for a really hand-made Christmas.

 All materials are included and no previous experience is necessary.
