Needlefelted bird pictures with Kirsten Hill-Nixon
This Dry felting method uses a special needle to attach wool fibres to the surface of a woollen background. Bring along pictures of your favourite small birds, for colour reference, as well as 2 b+w A4 copies where the bird is at least life size in the image. All needles and coloured wool fibre will be supplied. A great way to learn how to make your own images. You dont need to be able to draw! And if you are a stitcher this makes a lovely picture surface to stitch into by machine or hand.
