Needlefelt Kits by blackdogandgingercat

Gloucester, England | 720 Sales

Announcement    You'll be amazed at how simple the craft of needlefelt is - it’s just so easy, relaxing and intuitive.
Making is part of who we are as human beings and crafting something 3D and solid from wisps of wool is a very positive, comforting and communal thing to do. And this is why we love it and want you to love it too.
Here at blackdogandgingercat, we design needlefelt kits for absolute complete beginners through to those looking for lots of challenge.
The kits for complete beginners fall into two categories:
Stage 1 - SUPER SIMPLE - for nervous beginners.
Stage 2 - BEGINNERS - perfect for anyone. These are for really learning how needlefelting works and how you can work the wool so that it becomes a wonderful, sculptural medium.
Then, as you begin to learn and want to try something a bit more complicated, we have designed:
Stage 3 - CHALLENGING – there are designed to improve your needlefelting skills, encouraging you to focus on sculptural form and more complex colour layering. They are for people who have had a bit of experience and now want to push themselves further. You could try these as a beginner but you might find them a bit frustrating and I would hate for that to happen.
Then finally, at the top of our LADDER OF LEARNING, we have:
Stage 4 - 'OH SO VERY CHALLENGING'. These are really NOT for beginners. They are for people who understand well how needlefelting works and how the wool responds.

Sharing the needle felt love through excellent kits

Fibre artist and needle felt kit designer, designed for absolute complete ‘beginners’ to those who are looking for something with a bit more technical detail – I’ve called these ‘challenging’. And then I also offer the ‘Oh, so very challenging’ – these are for people who have had a bit of experience and now want to push themselves further.

    Hi, I am Karen and live in the beautiful Gloucestershire countryside. I just love needlefelting which started a few years ago as a hobby and has now developed into a passion. I hope I can inspire you to feel the same passion that I do about felting
