|Course:||Sculptural Needle Felting - Country Hares & Foxes|
|Start Date:||10th February 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 to create your own unique country hare or fox out of beautiful wool, ready for you to take home or if you can part with them to give someone as a special 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
I love going to Dillington. Where is there like it? Arriving is like a decompression, a deep breath of pure air. The programmes of courses, concerts and talks are exceptional. The company is delightful; the food and the ambiance add to the pleasure; and all set in a magical landscape which seems to me a secret Somerset paradise. In a world of increasing dislocation, Dillington has a real sense of its place in the world.
