Make beautiful needle felt Owls using various shades of blended wool, with Annis McGowan
The owls are approximately 15.cm (6") high and each one will be unique to you as the wool will have been carded individually for each owls. You can use your creativity & experiment with textures and colours, adding your own details and personal touches . Almost anything goes and we've had some really great results! Depending on progress, you will also have the option get an extra kit from Annis to make an extra owl in class or take and make at home.
A full day workshop ideal for beginners or those with experience learning 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.
Please note that this workshop will be taking place in a first floor studio up a flight of stairs.

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.
