First workshop after the COVID

First needle felting workshop - Rogan Campbell Retirement Village in Feb 2023. 6 residents registered but more want to try. I used up the 10 sets of equipment I have in hand 🙂.

I felt sorry for some of the ladies as I didn't able to pay full attention to them in the workshop. The ideal size of the group should be 6 instead of 10.

2019 July Term 2 School Holiday Family Needle Felting Workshop 

I held 4 family needle felting workshops during the term 2 school holiday. The workshops were not only for children. Parents and their children were having great time working together. A few workshops had been run successfully at Te Atatu Peninsula Library. In North Shore, East Coast Bay Library I had 3 supporting fathers joining their children and made their needle felted creature.

3 successful needle felting workshops in school term 3 holiday 2018 
The classes were totally full. Every children had their own idea what the want to make. As soon as I taught them to make a felted ball then added their favorite onto the ball, they had already started to create their very own sculptures. Some parents and grandparents were enjoying needle felting as well as their children/grandchildren :)
