Unlock your creativity and spend the afternoon with me learning how to make one of these beautiful Spring Hares.
This half day workshop is tailored for complete beginners or those just wanting to improve their needle felting technique. No sewing and no tricky patterns. Just a barbed needle and a handful of wool! The afternoon will, as always, be relaxed and informal with one to one tuition, a guarantee of tea, cake and a beautiful fox to take home. All materials will be provided. It’s the perfect way to get away from the noise of daily life and learn a new craft.
Blacksmith Shop Crafts is close to York, Leeds, Hull, Beverley and Lincolnshire and this lovely venue is set in a renovated 19th century blacksmith’s forge.

One of my favourites designs which, unexpectedly, turned out exactly as I had planned first time.
Have a lovely weekend and make the most of the sunshine because next week is going to be…..brrrr! ❄️ Time to unpack those furry knickers girls; have you never heard the saying, “ne’er cast a clout till May is out”?

Rainbow Sheep

Sharing some colour to match the mood of the glorious sunshine we are having in Lincolnshire ☀️ Have a lovely weekend and happy felting. Psst! Just open the box and get started on that felting kit; you know, the one that you have had for weeks…What’s the worst that could happen 🙃

New! ‘Rustic Robin’ Needle Felting Kit

New kit ready.  I know I shouldn’t have favourites and should love all the fuzzies just the same but I can’t help it… I have put this on as an introductory offer for Mother’s Day and Easter and, even better, you get to make two Robins from one kit because there is zero chance of you parting with the first one! www.lincolnshirefenncrafts.com

 

Come On Spring…

Come on Spring! We’re ready and waiting…

Life size Mountain/Winter Hare. Their colour changes to suit the season. This one is mid change heading towards its Spring/Summer brown.
