Needle felt a beautiful fairy / angel or gnome / Santa. We use soft merino wool to make the angels / fairies and coarser Bergschaf for the gnomes / Santas . It would make a lovely Christmas gift or decoration - perhaps for the top of your tree! Using a few basic techniques you can produce a beautiful result, a great introduction for anyone new to needle felting, or anyone wanting to make a lovely decoration. Your piece will be unique.
Please wear clothing that is not dark (fibres can cling) I find three-quarter sleeves or ones that can be rolled up easiest to work with.
The price includes materials, coffee, tea and biscuits.
This workshop is intended for adults and older children, we suggest age 14+. Younger children by arrangement only - please contact us if you would like to bring a younger person so we can discuss it with you.
My name is Maggie. I'm a former graphic designer. My love of crafts began when my mum and grandma taught me to knit, sew and crochet. I have been creating things ever since, even trying stone carving. I love working with felting, especially that magic moment when something appears out of a ball of fluff! I am a member of the International Feltmakers Association and have won prizes at local shows with my feltwork.
If you prefer to craft at home, we have a range of Needle Felting Kits for sale.
