Needled Felted Birds with Carol Funnell

We had a wonderful day creating a very life like Cardinal or Stellars Jay out of wool roving.

We leaned both the skill of needle felting and the importance of shape and proportion. Admittedly a few needles were broken and a few Band-Aids needed in the process but the workshop gave us lots of time to talk and laugh and share stories.

I can say I will be looking at animals and birds in a very different way from now on.  Who would have thought that a bird had a flat back and so many similar shapes.

Thank you Carol for a very enjoyable day and to Debbie for your hospitality.
