In this workshop we’ll take your basic needle felting skills to the next level with step-by-step instructions on building a complex form, creating life-like attributes and adding a finishing layer to your new friend. Loads of image will be provided and you’re also welcome to bring your own.

A familiarity with needle felting is required.

Beginning Needle Felting: Let’s Make a Rabbit!

with Elyse Hochstadt Supply List


Felting pad and needles:

  • 1 or 2, 36 spirals, 3 – 40 triangles and 2 needles of your choosing in between those two sizes.
  • You’ll also want at least 1 multi-needle tool that holds up to 3 needles. Optional: multi-needle tool for 5-6 needles.
  • Core wool at least 4 oz
  • Wool for fur: Coarser wools like Suffok, Corriedale, Herwick and Jacob work best. You can 1 or 2 colors.
  • Wool for paw pads, nose, inner ear. I recommend Corriedale silver for this in a blend that incorporates one of your main fur colors and a blush pink.
