    FANCIFUL FUNGI

    with Pippa North


    Come and create beautiful needle felted sculptures, using gorgeous Norwegian fleece and merino prefelt.

    We will sew a loop to hang, to make unique decorations or presents. This workshop will be gently paced, I will provide a sponge to work on and the fleece is included in the workshop price.

    Please bring your own needles, you will need triangular needles general purpose size 36 and fine /detail size 43, 46 as the basics, a few of each in case of breakages. Please also bring a basic sewing kit, and your own needle felting equipment if you have it.

    I use Clover needle felting tools and buy needles from Wingham Wool Work, but many places sell them including etsy and amazon. Needle felting is a very addictive and rewarding craft requiring very basic tools to create wonderful sculptural forms.

    Suitable for all levels.
