Purchase your kit online and then during the 90-minute workshop, you’ll learn how to make an adorable pose-able mouse with her party outfit of balloons and tutu skirt.
The project is needle felted, an increasingly popular craft which is suitable for total beginners. It involves stabbing a sharp needle (please be aware and we recommend children age 10+ complete with a responsible adult supervising) into wool which causes the wool to become firmer and shrink in the process. This means that you can sculpt shapes to your liking. For this project you will also learn how to wrap wool around pipe cleaners before felting it into shape.
To register for the event, purchase a needle felting kit from our online shop for £18 (plus £2 postage and packaging). It contains everything you will need to make the mouse, balloons and the tutu skirt: ethically sourced and fast felting wool, pink luxury pipe cleaner, glue-in eyes, flexible wire (for the balloons), felting needles and an eco-wool felting mat as well as full step-by-step colour instructions.
Once your kit has been purchased, you will receive it in the post within 1 week. You will also be sent an email which includes a link to watch the workshop live via Facebook. If you do not have a Facebook account, you can still get involved. A recording of the workshop will be sent out by email following the event.
£10 from the sale of every kit sold will go towards helping to support people affected by polycystic kidney disease, raising awareness and funding research.
(An email containing information about how to take part in the live workshop will be sent out prior to the event)
