Needlefelt Animals with Susie Walker

Have a stab at this! Needle Felt Animal Workshop.

Needle felting is a fascinating technique which allows you to sculpt carded wool into three-dimensional objects. It lends itself very well to animal sculpture as the results are soft and tactile.

In this one day class you will learn about the different needles and fibres that can be used, practise the basics and use those skills to make your own needle felted animal using locally sourced fleece, coloured New Zealand and Merino wool, beads and specialised felting needles.

If you have a particular animal in mind then it would be helpful if you could bring along a few images. But I will also bring examples of my own work to provide a bit of inspiration.

Please be aware than felting needles are very sharp, making this workshop unsuitable for children.
