Needle felting is a process using a barbed needle to mat the woollen fibres onto a piece of felt instead of using soapy water and rolling wool to create a piece of felt (as in wet felting). Once felting is completed you will be able to hand or machine-embroider on top of your piece to further enhance the design should you wish to. You may not have time to complete your design during the session but will be well on your way to creating a beautiful piece of art. There will be a machine embroidery demonstration at the end of the session using dropped feed dogs.
Wet felting is a method of producing felt from wool and other animal fibres. Warm soapy water is applied to layers of wool tops. Repeated agitation and compression causes the fibre to hook together to create a single piece of fabric. Please bring a long wooden rolling pin and a large towel (to absorb excess water as you felt).
For both workshops please bring any pictures that inspire you. Needle felters may wish to bring needles and embroidery threads (you may not have time to use these).

Please wear a mask due to Covid 19. Please bring your own. The conservatory is an ideal place to have a workshop as tables are large and there are plenty of windows that can be opened. Nettle Hill have put things in place – one way systems, hand sanitiser – further details to be provided.
