Carla will share with you how to make your sculptures more life like and come to life by be looking in more detail at the proportions, shapes and details of the beautiful magical brown hare by creating these features using intricate felted shapes, wire, the mixing and layering of different wool's and the use of reverse felting needles.
By the end of this two day workshop you will have created your own beautiful running hare 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!
