Autumn Workshops and Events

Please see below for Needle Felting Workshops and Events, and email to book jennyneedlefelt@gmail.com


Using felting needles and wool fleece, repeatedly pushing the barbed needles into the wool makes the fibres tangle together and create solid 3 dimensional forms.
Learn how to model the wool into shapes, join them together and turn the wool fleece into your own charming sculpture.

Some suppliers for needle felting..



The needles we use in the kits and workshops are 36 gauge triangle(with the red paint on tip) this has three edges and larger 'barbs' and does more work, good for building shapes...38gauge star , this is the finer needle with 4 edges and smaller barbs, good for detail, and finishing off.
I prefer to use  the more coarser wools such as Shetland, Jacob, Cheviot, but you can experiment with different samples. Some people use merino , but it is very slow to needle felt( great for wet felting) If you want to combine fibres, or mix colours and shades you will need some hand carders for combing the fibres, or 2 small wire dog brushes will do. I recommend keep needling so your model becomes quite firm and holds its shape

Here's some suppliers of carded wool fleece for feltmaking
