This is very much a hand-on course where students are guided through the needle felting process.
Join us for a fun and creative session. Learn the basic techniques of needle felting, how to make three dimensional shapes, join shapes, add surface details and create unique little felted animal sculptures of your own design. We will work through the design process to teach you skills that will enable you to make virtually anything with needle felting. You will take home your own unique needle felted creation. Kit (needles, wool, foam pad) included in course fee.
Students gain felting skills that they can continue to use at home for additional projects, as well as taking home their own unique needle felted creation.

As a textile artist, Carolyn specialises in needle felting and has achieved commercial success in both 3-D and 2-D felting. She continues to expand her skills in “painting” with wool to produce works of beauty that reflect the natural environment.

There is no prerequisite for enrolling in this course.
Students will be provided with a kit. They are welcome to bring additional items to the class such as fibre (Corriedale or roving wool).
For those with an interest in craft activities and perhaps looking for something just a little bit different, as well as students with a specific interest in needle felting.
