Needle felt your own dog - Sat 2nd November 10am - 2pm
At this relaxing needle felting workshop, you can create your own unique dog using the wide range of wools available to you. You might wish to create a mini felted replica of your own dog. It is also a great opportunity to craft a loved one’s dog as a gift.
This workshop is suitable for people who have maybe dabbled in some needle felting previously and now wish to build on their skills. Complete beginners can also achieve amazing results at this workshop, and I will guide you through every step to enable you to felt a dog you can be proud of!
Needle felting is a very therapeutic and satisfying craft. We will use needles to poke and sculpt the wool into shape. You will start by making a wire armature for your dog and then covering it with a layer of core wool. Next you will add other wools to create the texture, colour and markings particular to your dog. Finally, you will add the dog’s features.
If you wish to create a specific dog, please bring photographs of it from a variety of angles. Photographs on a phone is fine.
As we felt, I will talk to you about the different wools, needles and techniques used so that you will take home, not just your gorgeous dog, but knowledge and skills for all your future felting projects!
