Needle Felting...

If you looked at fleece under a microscope you would see thousands of little ‘scale’-like points. It is these points which lock together if agitated – with warm water or a felting needle – and produce felt. Felting needles have barbs on their ends, by repeatedly stabbing the fleece these barbs pick up the scales and form the fleece into a denser material. We recommend that these workshops are suitable for adults and children aged 7+.
