Learn to needle-felt using the core wool method and barbed needles, to create either a garden bird or one of the most important creatures in our eco-system, the delightful bumblebee.
During this workshop we will be using, and finding out about, Welsh and British fleece, in their natural and hand-dyed colours, and learning how to needle-felt a 3 dimensional garden bird such as blue tit, robin or wren or our favourite bumblebee.
The barbed needles are used to fuse the fibres and sculpt the wool into your own shape and style.
You are advised to bring in photos to work from, or browse through the resources available.
This workshop is suitable for all abilities, including beginners. Emma will guide you through the techniques and you will be able to take home your completed needle-felt bird or bumblebee at the end of the workshop.
All the materials are available for you to choose from, and cost £10 per person.
There will also be the opportunity to purchase a kit to go home and continue to needle felt!
Tutor: Emma from FfolkyFfelt
Fee: £36 per person
NB. There is an additional £10 per workshop for materials, to be paid in cash on the day.
Places are limited to ten participants per event and must be booked in advance.
Review = “I’ve never tried any kind of felting before – a complete beginner in every sense of the word. The workshop was brilliant, so much choice of materials in incredible colours, the day was extremely well thought out, accommodating beginners like me, yet providing a setting where more experienced felters could also get the most from it. Emma managed to find that perfect balance of offering tuition, guidance and help, or letting us guide ourselves when we needed/wanted to. It was a very relaxing and creative day, fab venue and a nice group of people; allowing everyone to have some 1-1 time with Emma as well. I loved the workshop and was so proud of what I managed to achieve with my day, definitely worth it and would highly recommend Emma as a teacher and artist.” Martine Finlay Feb 2017
“Needle felting yesterday with Ems (Emma Bevan) was a great workshop and might try my own stuff now – on wet or winter days! VERY lucky to have Denmark Farm Conservation Centre just 10mins down the road – great place to meet like minded people, study or craft all day in a peaceful location.” Shelagh Yeomans Sept 2017.
