Virtual felting workshop with Heysham's 'Connecting to Nature' project
About the event
In conjunction with Heysham Nature Reserve’s, ‘Connecting to Nature’ project, Gwen Dean from www.gwensfeltedpaintings.com is hosting our first needle felting workshop and for this two hour workshop, you will create your own little toadstool needle felted painting, framed in an embroidery hoop.
Your kit will include:
· 4.5 x 5.5 inch dense foam pad;
· Two felting needles;
· A 4 inch wooden embroidery hoop;
· One square of linen with a template design; and
· Several colours of carded Corriedale wool.
During the workshop, we will demonstrate all the techniques you need to learn to complete your piece.
You will need to provide: some glue and scissors, which will come in handy at the end of the session.
This workshop is suitable for adults and children over 12.
Due to sharp needles, it is not recommended for younger children and children over 12 should be supervised by an adult at all times. Expert guidance is given throughout the workshop by Gwen.
Each kit has been prepared (at least 3 days before posting) and will be sent out to you before the home session occurs. All materials are then yours. We advise that you help and supervise your child when opening the kit and throughout the session. Kits are only available to those who book.
