Details

Make a lovely 14" high ’doorstop’ Hare in a choice, of either soft brown fibres or blended Herdwick greys, with a clever ’sand filled inside’ so making a proper working doorstop. This type of felt is produced by locking the wool together through repeatedly stabbing it with your needle, it sounds complicated but can easily be learned and some beautiful pieces can be created in this way. Annis will arrive with everything you need to create and learn to carefully needle felt the soft blended wool mix into a soft but heavy door stop approx 14" high. She is a highly accomplished needle felter and her work is for sale in local galleries in Cumbria.
