Regular price £25.00

Get your exclusive materials pack in readiness to create your own 3D mobile and join Joan on her needle felting tutorial which will feature as part of the Summertime Festival on the 10th of July.

Joan will take you through the techniques of needle felting to create FIVE 3D items -  a cloud, a flying seagull,  a sun, sailing boat on the sea, and a fish. In addition, you will also have access to a bonus tutorial to make the hot air balloon element for those of you who wish to include 6 items in your hanging mobile. Whether you are a complete novice or have some experience Joan's workshop will have something for everyone. Even if you have never needle felted before or if you are not confident about your artistic ability, Joan will take you through a beginners tutorial in The Felting Den prior to the event so you understand the techniques and have opportunity to have a go making one of the items. She has also devised a template sheet to work from to make proportions and sizes easier to gauge..

Whether you fancy learning a new craft, or want to make this as a gift for someone special, the kit consists of all you need to create 2 complete mobiles  (please note only 1 wooden hanger supplied)  plus templates and  some additional written  instructions to jog your memory once the online workshop is over.
