On this new exciting two day needle felting workshop fibre artist Carla Taylor of The Mousehole Woolery will guide you step by step through both the intermediate and more advanced techniques of needle felting as well as sharing lots of tips and tricks that she has learnt along the way as well as sharing her love and passion for local Dorset and British wool.
Carla will share with you how to make your sculptures come to life by be looking in more detail at the proportions, shapes and details of the magical puffin using intricate felted shapes, the mixing and layering of different textured wool's and the use of finer felting needles. The workshop will also cover the construction of wire armatures and how to work around them allowing you then to change the pose of your sculptures and provide extra stability when required.
By the end of this two day workshop you will have created your own magical coastal puffin mounted on a beautiful piece of locally sourced stone, ready for you to take home or if you can part with them to give that special someone as a gift!
A fun, creative, inspiring and relaxing weekend with friendly, like minded people!
