Woylie – 3D Needle felting with wire armature with Peta Korb
This workshop is designed to introduce students to 3D needle felting using wire armatures. Focus will be on creating a Woylie, a Western Australian native animal.
Peta will introduce students to the basic tools and techniques to set them on their needle felting journey. Throughout the workshop, students will learn a range of techniques including wrapping, shaping, felting and sculpting wool around a wire armature.
Peta will bring along a range of samples of her 3D needle felted work to inspire creativity and showcase the possibilities of needle felting.
Students will go home with the skills to finish their very own Woylie if time doesn’t permit finishing in the workshop.
Skill Level: This workshop is suitable for beginner needle felters and those wanting to explore wire armatures.
Please Note: Wear comfortable clothing as we will be working in close quarters with a small animal for the day.
SKILL STUDENTS WILL LEARN: To identify different felting needles, tools and their uses To create a simple wire armature Building up an armature with wool Wrapping techniques Sculpting with wool Colour blending with wool Creating a realistic animal pelt Finer finishing details
