JOIN A WORKSHOP IN PERSON OR ONLINE
You can learn how to make a horse just like Maya, using colours of your choice.
Learn step by step how to needle felt a little horse of your own approximately 7" tall. Use a wire armature to give your horse stability and the option to pose.
Materials are not included in the cost of the course. You will be emailed a list of tools and materials upon request or registration, as well as given access to a video which will show you the materials and tools in detail. The tools and materials can be found reasonably and I give you tips on how to source them.
The module videos will be uploaded each week in the Facebook group. I will support you and answer questions for the first four weeks of the course. You are welcome and encouraged to upload photos or videos of your progress in the group.
