Needle Felt a Life Sized sitting hare , with Annis McGowan
Make a lovely hare of sitting height approx 34 cm plus the ears. You can decide your own pose, either with ears up, or "moongazing" with the ears back. We will be using natural brown and grey blended wool, all materials and tools are provided. This course is suitable for ALL abilities, even those who are new to needle felting.
To create such an impressively detailed and large hare in just one day is quite a task! A lot of carefully prepared and detailed instructions are shared and demonstrated to the whole group in managed stages by Annis. Please be aware this course runs until 5.30pm and can sometimes run over to 6pm. This means its not possible to accommodate folk needing to leave early. The class is methodically taught as a whole group, step by step. Please bear this in mind if you have other engagements that evening or a lift organised.
A full day workshop learning new methods which will inspire you to make more felted creations in future. Annis is highly accomplished in needle felting and her work is for sale in local galleries in Cumbria . She also sells needle felt kits online. 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.
