Join us for a four week course of needle felting. Needle felting is a slow, yet highly rewarding process. By the end of the course you’ll have created your own small British bird sculpture(s) such as a robin, wren or a coal tit.
The course is open to complete beginners as well as people wanting to improve their needle felting skills.
When: Beginning on Thursday 4 May for four weeks, 6.30pm to 9pm (2.5 hours)
Format: You will be introduced to a variety of needle felting techniques. Step-by-step you’ll learn how to work with felting needles and wool, starting off by sculpting a basic shape, and progressing to adding more colours and fine details.
Materials: All materials and tools will be provided, however you’re welcome to bring images and books for inspiration.
Tutor: Zenia is a self-taught needle felting artist, who is originally trained in analogue photography She feels vastly inspired by nature and brings many years of teaching experience. (https://www.theladymoth.com/)
