Needle felting is a great craft to learn because it requires no previous experience and is easy to pick up straight away. Pretty soon you will be able to make simple brooches, home decorations and animals but if you want to challenge yourself there is much scope for more intricate work. So why not try out a #makewithmaryjane kit for yourself.
Other wools are available. Just message me your preference and I will happily create a custom order just for you. (Please note custom orders could extend the making time)
Each of my kits are graded easy, intermediate or difficult and come with full colour step by step instructions with a list of helpful tips which can be applied to many felting projects in the future. The easy kits are ideal for young and old trying out a new skill but if you are relatively dexterous there is no reason why you cannot tackle any kit.
All the materials necessary to make your chosen creation are included in each kit, the only thing that you may need is a regular needle and thread to see on the brooch backs
All my kits are suitable for ages 10 and over but simpler kits can be used by younger children as long as they are supervised by an adult because the felting needles are rather sharp.
