WILD BIRDS EGG COLLECTION

BEGINNER LEVEL

INTRO & CLEAR VALUE OF WHAT THE WORKSHOP WILL DO FOR THEM!

As a naturalist I still get a swoosh of excitement when I catch a glimpse of a clutch of eggs in a nest. A beautiful little bundle of hope encased in the prettiest protective armour. I wouldn’t dream of collecting real wild birds eggs, but I do love their variety of colours and patterns.

Which is why I love making these felt eggs.

Not only are they charming, but while making them you will build your starter felting skills and quickly get a feel for the wool, how to handle your needles and layer colour for a beautiful effect.
