Description

Fibre artist Carla Taylor of The Mousehole Woolery will guide you step by step through the basic techniques of needle felting as well as sharing lots of tips and tricks that she has learnt along the way as well as her love and passion for local Dorset and British wool.

By the end of the workshop you will have created your own Tilly Dormouse out of beautiful wool ready for you to take home or, if you can part with them, to give to someone as a special gift. The workshop will also include how to create a wire armature, small digits and how to use different felting needles to create different effects with wool.

This workshop is suitable for both beginners or those with some experience of needle felting. The price of the workshop includes all materials and a needle felting kit, that you get to keep, take home and carry on creating with.

A fun, creative and inspiring day with friendly, like minded people!
