Vintage Wren Needle Felting Workshop
Love wool? Then you’ll love needle felting! 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 lot 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 vintage garden wren 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.
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. If you would like to finish your little wren off in style by mounting it on a vintage cotton reel then please feel free to either bring along your own or there will be some available on the day to purchase.
A fun, creative and inspiring day with friendly, like minded people!
