Make a needle-felted friend

Learn how to make your very own wooly companion that you can attach to a keychain or keep as a good luck mascot on your desk.

You’ll be using the relaxing creative process of needle felt. Needle felting is a craft that involves repeatedly stabbing a needle into a piece of wool to shape it into its desired form. It’s perfect for creating small animal figures as the felted item’s texture resembles a real animal’s fur.

Needle felting is a popular form of stress relief, with many finding the repeated motions very therapeutic. Even better, you don’t need much to get started! In this experience, you’ll be given a pre-made felted acrylic ball and from there you’ll have free reign of what you turn it into.

What to expect:

  • Your host will give a brief overview of the different grades of needle felting and how to use them safely
  • Discover how to effectively sculpt shapes without the use of a wire armature
  • Start crafting and making your own needle-felt friend!
  • A fun way of celebrating Bristol Pride
