Needlefelt Mr Chips

Date Published: April 20, 2021

Mr Chips is a favourite amongst my students and a workshop that I am asked to deliver by other groups.  Aimed at both the novice and more experienced needle felter, the session begins with a demonstration of safe needle felting.  Everyone has a practice before we begin making Mr Chips.  We sculpture his head and then his body and tail.  Once we have attached the body and head together, we use carded Corriedale wool as overlay.  Mr Chips can live on a shelf or to add further interest glued to a shell or pebble.   In addition to following my instructions, you will be given an instruction sheet and a link to videos that can support you should you want to make more Mr Chips.
