The Course

Easter Bunny or Mad March Hare? Create your own 4-legged friend to take home! A tactile 1-day workshop exploring 3D needle felting techniques. Von will introduce you to the basic methods of dry felting natural wool fibre. By forming simple shapes and joining them together you will begin to build your soft animal structure.  Different shades can be mixed or overlapped to produce markings. The addition of ears and eyes, a tail and nose will complete your furry friend and bring him/her life.
Full of character, your adorable little sculpture will be a talking point for years to come.

Suitable for all skill levels, especially beginners

“I never thought I’d be able to produce something so amazing at the start of the workshop…for ages it just looked liked nothing and then a little dog started to appear, as if by magic!” D.M. (Huddersfield)

Tutor: Von Allen


Von Allen is a professional artist specialising in 3D needle felting techniques. Her work often features animals, with dogs being a particular favourite. Inspired by her own dog’s ability to change personality according to what he thinks it might get him, each character is an individual one off and will not be duplicated.

“Working with wool is so tactile; different types of wool react in different ways and sometimes elements develop by chance…the wool tells you where to go and how the character should emerge.”

Von sells her pieces at art fairs/galleries nationwide and has recently exhibited at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park Gallery.
