Autumn Workshops and newsletter... Pictures to be added soon ...

Autumn/Winter workshops, and Events

You can also see more on the following pages  ~for images of work in progress, results from workshops, and news, and pictures from wool festivals. ~shop including animal sculptures, kits and needle felting book.

Workshops and wool festivals have been wonderful so far and here are more dates for the diary.
The needle felting book "Needle Felting Workshops with Jenny Barnett" is proving very popular, and getting wonderful feedback, thanks you to everyone who has chosen a copy so far.

New workshops include the ever popular brown hares, these can also be made in a different shade of pale brown, grey or white for a snow hare.
The red fox could also be adapted to be a seasonal, white arctic fox.
The traditional jointed bear is a really nice workshop, and there will even be time to add a costume, or toy on the day.
There is a choice for the unicorn workshop, where you can switch the unicorn horn for some little wings to make Pegasus, or even change the fleece to a dusky grey for a nativity donkey.
And for Christmas gifts you can make a robin and snowman pair, and for fun a quirky looking turkey and some puddings for decorations.

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 colourful sculpture.

All workshops are £25 each, and include all materials to keep.
No experience is needed, and age range is adults and age 12 upwards.
