|Course:||Sculptural Needle Felting–Sheep|
|Start Date:||4th April 2018|
|Fee:||£62.00 What's included?|
Love wool, then you'll love needle felting! Fibre artist Carla Taylor of The Mousehole Woolery will guide you step by step through the basic techniques of needle felting using a beautiful array of wool including some local Dorset and British wool to create your own unique woolly sheep to decorate your home with or give to someone as a special handmade gift! A fun, creative and inspiring day!
Carla Taylor creates contemporary sustainble 3d wool sculptures inspired by the animals and landscape of the British countryside and coastline using the technique of needle felting. Needle felting involves using barbed needles of various sizes to repeatedly stab and sculpt wool fibres together, building layers of wool, transforming the fleece in to a felted work of art! Carla likes to work closely with local Dorset farmers promoting the use of local and British wool and will often refer to conservation issues within her sculptures.
Carla works from her studio at the Mousehole Woolery situated in the heart of the Dorset countryside. For further details click hereBack to List
In its commitment to the arts and to broader and even peripheral aspects of culture, Dillington House is a beacon of enlightenment in a world of increasing sameness, mediocrity and uncritical acceptance. And there is much to be said for the home cooking too. I unhesitatingly commend it to all who are still intellectually alert.
