About the event

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 mini needle felted sleeping fox.

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 and Needle Felting Magazine as well as the Foreword for Steffi Sterns book, “Making Simple Needle Felts.”  

All materials and tools will be supplied.
