What’s it all about? 

Needle felting is the process of turning loose wool into a solid felt using a barbed needle – it’s a very easy craft that doesn’t require extensive equipment. It’s also quite a relaxing craft, and once you know the basics you can create all sorts of 3D objects.

Using the dry needle felting technique you’ll be taught how to create basic 2D and 3D shapes, to develop into the cutest happy penguins.

As well as all instructions and materials, you will also be provided with tools and materials to continue needle felting at home. So if Winter is getting you down, lean in and make some cosy penguin friends.

This class is suitable for absolute beginners, and all equipment is supplied.
