Description

Design and create your own majestic barn owl using a beautiful array of sustainable coloured fleece and local Dorset wood, in the inspirational setting of Sculpture by the Lakes.


On this new two day retreat, fibre artist Carla Taylor of The Mousehole Woolery, will guide you through the basic techniques of needle felting. She will share her love and passion for local Dorset and British wool, plus lots of the tips and tricks that she has learnt along the way.


The technique of needle felting involves using special barbed needles to repeatedly stab and sculpt wool fibres together to form both 2d and 3d forms, transforming loose sheep's fleece into your own unique sustainable design. Carla will share with you how to bring your sculptures to life by looking in more detail at the proportions, shapes, colours and details of the beautiful majestic barn owl. You will be creating these features using intricate felted shapes, wire, the mixing and layering of different wools and the use of clay to create both beaks and claws.

​By the end of the weekend you will have created your own magical barn owl mounted on a beautiful piece of locally sourced Dorset wood. A fun, creative, inspiring and relaxing weekend in the countryside with like-minded friends. Suitable for both beginners and those with some experience of needle felting.

The price of this workshop includes lunch and refreshments as well as free entry to the sculpture park on the last day of the workshop where you will find copious amounts of inspiration for all your future felting projects. All materials are included as well as a needle felting kit that you will get to keep, take home and carry on creating with. Places are limited and book up fast so please book your place early! If you have any dietary requirements please notify us two weeks before the start of the workshop and email us at themouseholewoolery@gmail.com.
