Adult Beginners Needle Felting Workshop - Easter Chicks

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 essential

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

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 sweet little chick to take home, in plenty of time for Easter.

The morning will begin at 10:30 where we will create the basic sculpt of our chick and add colour.

We will then have a break at 12:00 in order to have lunch. Note that lunch is not provided. The onsite tearoom will be open or you are welcome to bring your own. We will then return at 1pm to add the feet, eyes and details to our chick.

All materials and tools are provided.

Admission to Wightwick Manor is also provided and you are welcome to view the house and grounds once the workshop has ended (please check the Wightwick Manor website for opening times).

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
