Wind in the Willows: Mole
Let your imagination wander with Mole, as you create their likenesses in wool felt. Although youth is fleeting, childhood stories and wistful memories endure. Kenneth Grahame and A.A. Milne knew this when they wrote their classic adventures, Wind in the Willows and Winnie the Pooh, and Cynthia Treen knows it as well. Her charming felt animal designs are classics in the making, with their own stories waiting to be imagined. Cynthia’s passion for teaching and drafting comes through in her detailed instructions and illustrations, perfect for guiding beginners and advanced makers alike.
Lunch: Please pack a lunch to eat during a short lunch break.
Experience to attend: All workshops are for adults with basic hand-sewing experience to advanced skills.
The instructor will prepare a techniques video for students to watch before they come to get everyone up to speed with the basics.
Students will learn: Needle threading tricks, Starting and Ending knots, Hiding knots, Whipstitch, Baseball stitch, Making strong seams in felt, Disguising felt seams (great for beginners!), Stuffing techniques and Wiring techniques, and various ways to create facial features.
