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.

Using the dry needle felting technique you’ll be taught how to create basic 2D and 3D shapes, to develop into colourful felted designs for earrings or accessories – who doesn’t need a fluffy mushroom keychain?!

As well as all instructions and materials, you will also be provided with tools and materials to continue needle felting at home.

This class is suitable for absolute beginners, and all equipment is supplied. Start thinking what you might like to create. Really, anything is possible.

  • The basics of needle felting
