 Connect to nature and create with wool fibres- Needle felt workshop on Saturday, 24. October 2015, 14.00 – 17.00

In this afternoon workshop you can create your personal needle felted ornament related to the natural realm. To connect with the natural realm we’ll start with a guided inner journey.

Testimonial:: I enjoyed the guided journey to start the afternoon. It really set the tone for the creativity. It was also fantastic to see other people’s creations taking shape and to take inspiration from the beautiful display. The teaching style was relaxed and encouraging and very informative. Thank you for a lovely afternoon. Karen L.
