Craft Workshop Saturday 16th October 2021: Mastersterclass Needle Felted armature (wired) moon-gazing hare (intermediate level)
This is Masterclass Workshop which is aimed at intermediate needle-felters where you will be learning to make a wired armature of a moon-gazing hare which you will then needle felt to make an adjustable animal.
Maximum Workshop: 4 People
Time: arrive for 9.30am start - finish 4.30pm
Venue: Craft Workshops, Grassroots Garden Centre (separate studio within the grounds), Stalbridge Road, Henstridge BA8 0SA
Spend the day in a small group of friendly crafters learning how to make an armature (wired) needle-felted moon-gazing hare.
This Workshop is a busy practical hare-making day suitable for those with some needle felting experience - if you are unsure if the workshop would be suitable for you please feel free to contact me before booking.
We will work through the steps of making an armature structure for your hare from wire, add the core to the hare to form the shape, cover with 'fur', make and shape legs, tail, ears, and face (including making felted eyes) to produce your moon-gazing hare.
It is a quite intensive day of needle felting so you may fully finish your armature Moon Gazing Hare, but please note that not everyone fully finishes in the day.
I will support you online to finish your hare at home following the workshop if you would like some assistance.
You should be able to go home with your wonderful finished moon-gazing hare (although it will be repositionable so you can choose for your hare to look in other directions too!).
You will also have the skills to carry on at home to make further armature structured needle felt animals, birds and other needle felts which need internal support structures.
Although we will all be making the same animal on this workshop, you will have plenty of creative input when you are making your hare so each one will be an individual character.
All tuition, tools, fibres, wires etc are included in the cost of the workshop - you don't need to bring any of your own equipment or tools unless you would like to do so.
Hot and cold drinks are available throughout the day. Please bring lunch, snacks, and a travel mug or similar.
Buying as a gift? Please let me know so we can celebrate with you and/or the recipient.
