Tilly Dormouse Needle Felting Workshop - 3rd April 2023
Love wool? Then you'll love needle felting! Fibre artist Carla Taylor of The Mousehole Woolery will guide you step by step through the basic techniques of needle felting as well as sharing lots of tips and tricks that she has learnt over the last nine years in her own felting journey. The day will start off with a warm welcome and a hot drink followed by a discussion about the history of wool and needle felting. The Mousehole Woolery are official supporters of the Campaign for wool and love to share their passion for British wool, showcasing the beauty, worth and diversity of this beautiful biodegradable and sustainable material and how it can be used. Within the workshop Carla will discuss the equipment used within the therapeutic craft of needle felting and the variety of inspiring wools and fibres that can be used. The workshop will also cover how to create a wire armature and small digits. By the end of the workshop you will have created your own little dormouse out of beautiful wool ready for you to take home or, if you can part with them, to give to someone as a special gift. This workshop is suitable for both beginners or those with some experience of needle felting. The price of the workshop includes a lovely home made lunch and all materials including a needle felting kit, that you get to keep, take home and carry on creating with. Accommodation is also available at Dillington House. A fun, creative and inspiring day with friendly, like minded people in a beautiful creative setting!
