Needle Felting again!

Another introduction to needle felting  – with a bigger group this time! The trick with needle felting is to get the stabbing action correct. Keep the needle straight or else it’s all to easy to snap the shaft. And remember – the foam block is for protection, the needle should only just go into the foam not drive right through it. 

Once again, a beautiful range of brooches emerged after a couple of hours tuition. Some people chose to use the cookie cutters, a great way to quickly build up a shape and protect the fingers! Others took the plunge and went freestyle. That gives greater freedom to design  a unique piece. Details were added with finer gauge needles – check out the dotty welly! 

Ideas and conversation flowed – along with tea and biscuits! Well done everyone. 😄

   
    

Once  again people enjoyed the  workshop and I hope that they will continue to explore the wonderful world of needle felting.
