About / description

Join Lisa with Lovefor a creative needle felting workshop in the luxury of Leonardslee Mansion House.


Date:                  Saturday 28thMarch 2020

Time:                 9.30am – 12.30pm


In the wonderful world of crafting, needle felting is one of the cutest activities around. It’s simple in concept but looks complex in execution, and the results are elaborate sculptures made completely out of wool. It’s also seriously addictive –so watch out! 


Essentially, the activity uses a special needle to fuse fibers together in a stiff form. Animals are a popular subject for needle felting as their real-life fuzziness is ideal for the fuzziness of the fibers, once you have learnt the technique you will be making your own animals in no time.


 Your tutor Lisa is an experienced tutor in the art of needle felting and she specialises in making animals so you will be in good hands.! Lisa will guide you, step by step in the process of 3D needle felting. Using wire armature to shape your design and a needle to lock the scales of the wool together you will create a gorgeous and handsome Hare. You will be provided with your own piece of log to help you decide on the size and shape of your Hare to create a stunning finished piece to take home with you. This is an ideal starters workshop but can be tailored for the more experienced too. 

Lisa says:

“As a child I wanted to be Beatrix Potter, I think I wanted to talk to animals. Now as a ‘grown up’ I spend my days bringing animals to life in wool. Needle felting is addictive and leads to compulsive creativity. If you don’t like what you’ve made you just haven’t stabbed it enough!
