Adult Beginners Needle Felting Workshop - Birds inspired by the Strawberry Thief

This is a workshop aimed at adult beginners or first time felters with tutor Natalie Harris(Brooks). Natalie is a fine artist using needle felting and the creator of Roly Poly Ponies.

  • Booking not needed

This workshop is aimed at adult (18+) beginners and people new to needle felting.

In the morning (10.30-12:00) the basics of what type of wool and needles are best for sculpting will be explained and then you will use some basic techniques to make a simple bird inspired by William Morris’ “Strawberry Thief” pattern. We will break for lunch and an opportunity to get some fresh air in the grounds at 12.00. We will then return at 13:00 to finish our birds and add the finer details.

All materials are provided. Please note that lunch is not included, the on-site tearoom will be open or you may bring your own.

Admission to Wightwick Manor is also included and you are welcome to view the house and grounds once the workshop has ended. Parking is free.

Note that as Wightwick Manor is a historical venue, some floors may be unlevel and you will have to negotiate some stairs.

£25 per person, booking essential. You can book with Natalie on her Facebook page at www.facebook.com/rolypolyponies or by emailing her at info@rolypolyponies.co.uk
