Using 100% British Wool and a needle you will be guided through various steps and be able to produce your own cuddly lop eared bunny which is yours to adopt and keep.

 

All materials provided, 16 years and over.

places required

 

During this course, which is suitable for beginners or those who have some small knowledge of the process, we will create a colourful coaster or pin cushion using hexagonal templates and fabrics of our choice. The patchwork will be hand stitched with no requirement for a sewing machine; the process will be explained and you will also receive written instructions. The product should be finished during the 2 hour period so that it can be taken home and used. You will also take away the ability to create more in the same style.

We will provide all materials, but if you have some favourite scraps of fabric, or would like to use your own sewing kit, please bring these along. Cotton or poly/cotton weight fabrics are easier to work with and give a neater finish.

We hope you will be inspired by this process and we will have examples of other patchwork makes, should you wish to continue practising this skill

An image of your photograph will then be transferred onto fabric for use during the workshop. You could also add some text, or a personalised message, which Sarah can also print onto fabric for you. This could form part of the design or be used as a greeting on the back of the design, if you wanted to give it as a gift.

Needle felting workshop

Sunday 27th

May

This three hour workshop is aimed at beginners and intermediate level needle felters. The aim of the workshop is to demonstrate the various techniques involved such as wrapping, covering the armature, building shape and muscle, basic 2d felting and eyes.

At the beginning of the session I will give you a brief explanation of the tools you will be using, the different types of wool and blends that you will need and the needles I use.

I will provide you with a bag, mats, practice needles, a multi purpose needle and a fine needle, core wool, the roving you will need to cover and detail your piece. You will get a half made model so you can start learning to felt straight away. You will also get an armature and wool to take away with you, along with your needles, mats etc. so you can carry on at home.

 

I normally make rabbits/mice/foxes and dogs. These can all be made from the basic armature I will provide you with. If you'd like to have a go at a garden bird (robins are popular) or anything else please contact me so that I can sort out materials and prepare your armature in advance.

The cost of the workshop is £35 and includes all materials and tools required to make two animals.
