Create your own black bear cub in this needle felting workshop. Even if you’ve never tried this particular craft before, you’ll be surprised at how you can sculpt delightful animal characters from basic shapes made from wool.

All the techniques of needle felting will be explained thoroughly from the start; pre-shaping the wool with your hands, loosely binding the wool with the barbed needle and compressing it to sculpt more precise forms.

Once the basic bear is completed, you will learn how to add details and features, creating expression and character with lighter coloured wool.

The final touch will be to add the black bead eyes, after which it’s over to you to create a more complete scene using bits of wood, etc., in your own time from your imagination.

All materials included; wool, eyes and needle for you to keep. Other items; sponge, finger guards, needle holders, will be available to loan for the day.
