Needle felt a bumblebee at Denmark Farm

  • Denmark Farm conservation centre Lampeter (map)

During this workshop you will be using, and finding out about, Welsh and British fleece, and learning how to needle-felt your own Bumblebee!
We will be needle-felting using the core wool method and barbed needles, and create one of our most important creatures in our eco-system, the lovely bumblebee.

The barbed needles are used to fuse the fibres and sculpt the wool into your own shape and style.

You are advised to bring in photos to work from, or browse through the resources available.

This workshop is suitable for all abilities, including beginners. Emma will guide you through the techniques and you will be able to take home your completed needle-felt bumblebee at the end of the workshop. 

All the materials are available for you to choose from, and cost £10 pp.

There will also be the opportunity to purchase a kit to go home and continue to needle felt!
