Masterclass needle felted Animal-head*
During the 3-day course, you will learn step by step how to make a head of a sheep, ram, Scottish highlander, Moose or Bear with the felt needle and sheep's wool.* You can make a fantasy sheep or an existing sheep breed. A breed requires some precision and insight. Experience in wet- and needle felting is required.
You will start with some homework by studying the anatomy of the head of the choosen animal. During the class you will get instructions how to build the head by needlefelting and the body'collar' as well as the hangingpiece by wetfelting. We are working with raw fleece and with mountainsheep. The materials can be ordered by the teacher or bring by yourself.

about Paulien Sytsema
Wool is an expression of my creativity. It challenges me and stimulates me. Wool relax me to the depths of my being. Punching the wool started with a Danish felt artist Birgitte Krag Hansen. She has shown me that the possibilities are unlimited.
I grew up with the wonderful smell of wood. My father is a furniture maker and when he was at work, I often helped him. By seeing what he could make of wood, my fantasy started to work.
All workshops are being taught in Dutch and/or English. We will serve fresh coffee and homemade lunches, with healthy salades, farmers bread and several Dutch cheeses.
