About the event

This is a family course for adults and 8+ year olds, taught by local needle felting artist, Sarah Brown. The art of needle felting involves a barbed needle and woolly fibres.  There is no sewing or gluing involved. All participants will be taught the basics of needle felting and then taught to make their own needle felted bee. 

Parents/carers pay the usual £30 price for an adult place and can bring their 8+ year old with them for just £10 extra.

All materials and tools will be supplied, as well as tea/coffee and biscuits. There will also be an opportunity to purchase some supplies to keep you going in your new hobby. 

Sarah Brown runs an online Needle Felting group with over 15,000 members and is a member of The International Feltmakers Association. She has been teaching needle felting for nearly 3 years and has been felting for more than 6 years.  She has written articles and reviews for British Fibre Art Magazine, as well as the Foreword for Steffi Sterns new book, “Making Simple Needle Felts.”  Sarah also has a regular column in the new Needle Felting Magazine.
