Have-a-go Day: Needle Felting with Catharine Smith and Caroline Goss.
We will be showing you how to use a special kind of needle to felt a 3D sheep face onto a base which can be used to decorate a bag or hat and can also be made into a brooch. There is no need for any previous experience in needle felting. All materials for doing this will be provided and it is not difficult to learn! The backing is made from Herdwick fleece felted onto a circle of pre-felt and then the sheep head is sculpted on to it with white fleece to give a 3D result. Detail is then added to make the eyes and if desired a mouth.
Visitors are very welcome to come to our meetings, with no charge for your first visit and then a charge of £5.00 for the next two visits; after that we request that you join the guild. Membership is just £25 per year.
