About This Class

This is a beginner’s needle felting class so no prior experience is required, just a little patience at the beginning.

I will show you step-by-step how to work with the needles, form the shapes and make an adorable little bunny.

Once you have learned the basic needle felting techniques, you can experiment with different coloured roving and easily make anything your imagination comes up with. 

It does become quite addictive!
