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 her love and passion for local Dorset and British wool.
Carla will share with you how to make your sculptures come to life by looking in more detail at the proportions, shapes and details of our magical kingfisher including the feathers, the mixing and layering of different textured wool's to create shine and the use of finer felting needles. The workshop will also cover the construction and covering of wire legs and beaks and how to cover and work around them. You will also learn the technique of shingling where we implant different layers of wool to create a more realistic finish to your sculptures.
By the end of this two day workshop you will have created your own magical kingfisher mounted on a beautiful piece of locally sourced Dorset wood, 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! A little self care package all rolled in to one!
This workshop is suitable for those that have intermediate experience of needle felting and will involve some basic sewing, e.g sewing of beads or french knots.
The price of the workshop includes lunch and refreshments as well as all materials and a needle felting kit that you will get to keep, take home and carry on creating with. Accommodation is also available subject to availability.
