Create your own endearing Bunny from needle felt with Annis McGowan.
Spend a relaxing day creating this irresistible little character under the guidance of Annis. Each bunny is approx 22.5m long and will bring a smile to everyone's face, He can be light natural browns and greys.
Needle felting sounds complicated (it's the locking of wool fibres together through repeat stabbing with barbed needles) but it isn't - it can be easily learned and some beautiful pieces can be created in this way. During the day we will also learn about sculpting, using shading to highlight features, and optional colours to create your own individual bunny.

About the Artist Annis has always enjoyed being creative; she was introduced to working with wool at an early age. However, her discovery of needle felting some years ago captured her imagination and enthusiasm, which led to her designing her own 3D sculptures. Her work can now be found in galleries around the Lake District. She thoroughly enjoys the experience teaching at her workshops and meeting so many creative people whilst introducing them to the craft - many of whom find it very therapeutic as well as interesting. Annis became known for her own design of her Herdwick sheep doorstop, and they have since become very popular subjects for the workshops, as well as the hare sculptures and owls. Annis will teach you her own methods of creation & at the end of the course you will leave with something you can be proud of (there are some fantastic results), as well as the desire to continue the wonderful art of needle felting.
