CRAFTY MUSHROOMS GROW BY MAGIC

Stages in the formation of felted mushroomsA last craft meeting, before shutdowns, was enjoyed by just a few Whitley WI members, spaced out to avoid contact, but near enough to enjoy each other’s company and learn a new skill.
We are so lucky to have very talented members and expert member Jackie showed us the gentle art of needle felting. Using naturally dyed wool and a felting needle, a variety of mushrooms grew as if by magic. Magic Mushrooms!!
We learnt a lot about the nature of wool and how its fibres can be brought together by agitation using a specially barbed felting needle. Fascinating!

Thank you Jackie,

a new craft we can now enjoy in isolation if need be.
