HOW I TEACH
I am an experienced craft educator of 7 years and others describe my teaching style as encouraging and simple to follow - suited to different learning approaches. See below the testimonial from someone who had never needle felted before :)
WHO ARE THESE TUTORIALS SUITABLE FOR?
These projects suits the beginner or master needle felter. Over half the people who trial my instructions are beginners so you can feel confident that everything is broken down into simple steps.
I have designed them to suit someone who has literally never held a felting needle before, whilst also providing those with more experience with some extra tips and tricks along the way. These downloadable PDFs give you so much more than just the basic instruction: a Glossary, guide to good needling technique, explanation of the different fibres and heaps of transferable techniques.
It's a delightful gift for someone who has already has a good stash of needle felting supplies. And also gives a lot of support and recommended supplier list for those who are starting out.
CHILDREN must be supervised due to the super sharp barbed needle. Parents/carers - please use your own judgement on whether or not your child is old enough to do this project. As a guide, over 9s seem to have the focus to needle felt. Personally I love to encourage younger children to enjoy the tactile nature of wet felting. They can then grow into Needle Felting when the time is right.
“I’m thrilled with my mermaid! The photos & instructions were so easy to follow! I had no felting experience but felt like a pro as I finished my piece! I can't wait to start my next project. Thank you!!” Erica
