About your workshop:
Needle felting is fast becoming one of the most popular forms of model making in textiles. Enjoy this Spring workshop learning the technique of needle felting. Using a baaaarbed(!) needle and lots of woolly fibres including lovely Wensleydale curly locks make an adorable little sheep.
How to sculpt and shape wool batt using a specific barbed needle. Needle felting uses special ‘barbed’ needles, repeatedly stabbing into wool fleece. This tangles the fibres together, building the layers and shaping to model and create your own miniature felt sculpture. No hand or machine sewing involved.
