Needle Felt Swallow Online


Online Needle Felt Swallow Workshop, £35

Celebrate the onset of Spring and the return of these wonderful birds by learning to needle felt a stylized swallow in this online workshop.

Saturday 27th March, 12 - 3.30pm

The workshop will be made up of an online Zoom session. You will also have access to a private facebook group where Anna will share videos and tips for felting your swallow.

This felting workshop is suitable for beginners or people wanting to develop their needle felting skills further. You will be clearly guided through the process and different felting techniques, but, please do remember, it takes time to learn a skill!

Our felting sessions differ from kits in that they enable you to learn the full process of needle felting; how to use your needles properly for different effect, how to create forms and what fibres to use.

Price includes all materials and postage, but please provide your own felting block if you have one. If you need a felting block one, please order at time of booking, it is simply a piece of upholstery foam, which works perfectly, but you may wish to source one yourself separately.

You'll find flocks of swallows displayed on mass on walls around Portugal, this was where I got my inspiration. As these migratory birds always seek to build their nest in the same place where they previously inhabited, they became a symbol of Family and Home. Over here they are usually associated with love, loyalty and peace, apparently the swallow bird spirit animals are joyful, decisive and full of hope too, so it seemed a great choice to welcome in this April.

If you want to order extra kits to make more in your own time, you can do that too.
