Two needle felt workshops in GalGael

Needle fellted butterflies 
An opportunity to felt for beginners

Come along to GalGael and get creative with colourful sheep's wool fibres on Thursday, the 27th of June 2013, 4-5.30pm.
This is one of two felt workshops, run by Laryna (Woolcraft volunteer in Galgael.) The second
workshop will be on
Thursday, the 11th of July, 4-5.30pm.
You will learn how to use a felt needle to sculpture the wool with the felt needle and create e.g. a little animal or a figure, or even start to sculpture a
face; create a fairy, jewellery or any other 2- or 3 dimensional item.
It's fun, I love it and like to share my skills with anybody being interested. Children are welcome and need to be accompanied by an adult.
The sessions can be booked separately.

No previous experience necessary. 
Suggested donation: £5 
Please, spread the word, invite friends!
Good to start with: A rainbow bracelet

If you are planning to take part, please send an email to:
woolcraft.atgalgael@googlemail.com or just come along to GalGael in 15 Fairley Street, Glasgow/ Ibrox, G51 2SN. 

These workshops are run by Laryna E. Wuppermann

To needle felt a brown bear is good fun.
It needs a bit of patience and some experience in needle felting
or sculpturing in general.
