Needle felted Toadstools

with

VENUE

Animal Armature for Needle Felting

with

In this beginner’s workshop, we’ll use images of an animal in order to understand how to construct a correctly proportioned wire armature. This skill will help with making needle felted animals and characters. This can also be used for other art projects eg clay work, paper mâché and fabric wrapping. Building a wire armature helps with getting proportions correct, strength, and makes your creations posable. Once the armature is made we will look at how to start adding core wool and a top coat. Each student will have a lovely reindeer to take home.

This can be done easily and usually with minimal sewing e.g. a skirt becomes a top, pants into a skirt etc. Learn simple creative ways to remove and relocate sections of a garment for a quirky transformation. Save clothes, money and stop garments ending up in landfill. A Wardrobe Surgery graduate will model garments and assist in demonstrations.
