To create such an impressively detailed and large Hare in just one day is quite a task! Annis spends the week before each class carefully preparing the various 'components' for the hares along with detailed instructions for the workshop day. These are shared and demonstrated to the whole group in stages by Annis.
Your Hare will stand approximately 20" (50cm) high including ears. You can choose to either attach these as 'laid back and 'moon gazing' or in the alert upright position.
All materials and the tools needed on the day are included in the materials fee which also reflects this prep time spent by Annis. Thus students are able to make this lovely Hare in just one day. You can concentrate on the felting, sculpting and detailing of your own piece.
We aim to finish the day at 5:30pm. However, it's possible this particular class can run a little late. It also means it's not possible to accommodate people needing to leave earlier than 5.30pm. The class is taught step by step as a whole group.
This full day workshop is ideal for all abilities and provides an excellent opportunity to learn inspiring needle felting techniques. Needle felting is the locking the wool fibres together through repeat stabbing with barbed needles. It sounds complicated but can easily be learned and some beautiful pieces can be created in this way.
£75 including lovely 2 course Aga Lunch and home baking / Material Charges £45.
