Needle Felting – Make a Bunny 

This class is held as a private 5 hour workshop

Felted-bunny-backgroundRabbits are such wonderful animals. Learn to make your own rabbit with needle felting. Using natural sheep wool for the core and covering it with angora wool, your bunny will be very soft. You will also get to meet Mishka – a french angora rabbit and my very own fiber source. You can opt to use her shed hair if you choose to make a grey bunny. White and creamy-beige colour is also available – that fibre comes from a reputable Ontario source for angora fibre — the breeder that Mishka comes from. Having a live rabbit at the workshop will make sculpting your bunny even easier. You will also be shown how to needle felt a wee carrot and a head of lettuce for your new friend.
