Free taster: Needle felt picture
Who is this course for?
This course is suitable for everyone. No previous experience is necessary and you don’t need to be artistic either! Come along and create a fabulous felt picture using wool roving and a felting needle.
During this workshop you will create a small picture using wool roving in lots of colours. The fluffy fibres are laid onto a background piece of felt and then fixed into place by stabbing with a barbed needle. It’s great fun and gives quick results.
