Hare Today.... Gone Tomorrow

A Needle Felting Workshop


Friday 31st August -
2pm to 5pm

Friday 7th September - 10am to 1pm

 

Make a good sized needle felted hare over a two day Workshop taking place between 2pm and 5pm on Wednesday 29th August and the same time the following Friday, 31st August. This is a two day course teaching basic techniques and producing a really beautiful hare that will make a fantastic gift for a friend as a chair or bed plushy. Please note that it is not a toy. Of course, you will have some artistic licence in colour and personality of your hare.

The first day will be taken up making the body and wet felted ears and the second day you will embellish and colour your hare.

NOTE: If you don't know what needle felting is just google it to find out about the technique. It is simple and fun but the reason for the course being for adults only is that you do need to use a needle.

COST: It is £16 per person for the two days and there are a maximum of six places available. The course takes place as all of the others below at a private dwelling south of Plumstead Common. Book via selanfelt@gmail.com when you will be given full details.

 

Crochet - A Simple Shawl

Friday 31st August 2pm to 5pm

Friday 7th September  10am to 1pm

Make a beautiful Triangle Shawl "Lacey Pyramids". There is a written pattern included in the price of the course with later online support. It will be necessary for you to either bring your own materials (DK yarn and a crochet hook about size 8mm), alternatively you can purchase them on the day.

This will take place at the same time as the needle felting workshop i.e 2pm to 5pm on Wednesday 29th and Friday 31st August but with a separate tutor.

COST: Once again this is £16 per person for the two day course and there are a maximum of 8 places. Book as before via selanfelt@gmail.com when you will be given full details.
