Gosport Discovery Centre

Thursday 3rd, 10th, 17th, 24th November and 1st December 2022

10.00am to 12.00pm

Join us in a relaxing workshop where you will create a beautiful needle felted wreath.

  • Identify appropriate materials for each make
  • Use needle felting needles safely
  • Apply the processes required to create the needle felting look
  • Create at least one animal and background accessories such as snowmen, trees, post boxes or lampposts
  • Describe how creative activities have a positive impact on your wellbeing

About the course: Needle felting is also known as dry felting. It involves stabbing wool fibres repeatedly with a barbed needle.  This type of felting is used to create 2D or 3D shapes, including animals

Who is this course for: Anyone with an interest in felting wanting to learn a new skill and take a little time for their creative side to be explored.

Previous knowledge or experience: none required, however, this is a hands-on workshop which requires a lot of manual dexterity and may be unsuitable for some people.

How will I learn: observation and demonstration

How will I be assessed: by producing wreath and Q&A

What shall I bring: all materials will be provide for the workshop fee of £20.  Needles do sometimes break and spare needles will need to be purchased at a cost of £1 each.  There will also be a supply of other items available to purchase from the tutor should you wish to create more at home once the course has come to an end

Next steps: Further felting courses, other craft courses
