This morning I thought I would have a go at wet felting. Depending on which tutorial you look at on youtube you can be mistaken for thinking that wet felting takes forever is a very messy and laborious task. Fortunately, having attended a workshop with Eve Marshall last week, I have discovered that it can be fun and very rewarding! Here are my first attempts at wet felting flowers…I was very hapy with the results and plan to make them into brooches. I am thinking of trying my hand at wet felting a round bowl later today – not too sure how that will turn out! Good or bad, watch this space for photos.
Needle Felting at Joseph Banks
The second of the Felting Workshops, held at the Joseph Banks Centre in Horncastle, saw the ladies creating fabulous needle felted pictures with the intention of applying them to greetings cards. All equipment and materials were provided as well as lots of images and examples for inspiration.
November Needle Felting Workshops
My love of needle felting is fast growing into an obsession! So much so that I decided I had to share my interest with others and found myself, last Saturday, launching the first of the November Needle Felting Workshops which are being held in The Joseph Banks Centre on Bridge Street in Horncastle. We had a packed house with a lovely bunch of ladies, some had tried needle felting in the past while others were completely new to it. Various techniques were shown and discussed and everyone was given the option of selecting their preferred method of working. All equipment and materials were supplied, including fabulous Merino wool and by the end of the two hours everyone agreed they had had a good time and each of them had produced a beautiful, unique felted brooch to take home. One of the ladies contacted me the day after to say she had been wearing her brooch while out shopping and had received lots of admiring comments – not bad for a first attempt!
I will be holding the next session on Saturday 9th November from 10am – 12noon. All ages/abilities welcome but please note that numbers are limited so please refer to the poster for contact details as booking is essential.
