Fell Pony Society


30th July - 28th August

Things to bring for your needle felting workshop


  • A packed lunch   (Tea/Coffee will be available)


  • 2 x A4 photocopies  of your pet or animal (one colour & one black and white on ‘everyday’ printer paper). Try to fill as much of the A4 paper with your image as possible as this will be the finished size of your portrai

NB: Don’t print on thick paper or card


  • Image - bring a clear, in focus image without blurring or dark areas see

‘Hints and Tips for taking a Photo of your Pet’


  • Pony portraits – it’s important to be able to see a clear head shape.

If you are bringing a picture of your own pony try to bring one without too much forelock/mane covering the head – more hair can be added later!


NB: Jane will have a small selection of photocopies of animal images available for you to use on the day should your own image not be suitable. 


Useful to bring :

Some people find that a few close up/blown up photocopies of say the eyes, nose or mouth helpful to provide more detail.  It’s up to you.


A phone or iPad with images on can also be helpful but you must still bring the 2 x photocopies as mentioned above as these are used in the transfer process.


The ‘Taking a photo of your pet’ sheet provides examples and tips for taking a good animal photo, if needed.  Click here to download.


Provided for you to keep and take home


The following equipment & materials will be provided for you:

A selection of 100% real Wool fibres

A foam mat as a working surface,

Hessian fabric for your background

2 felting needles.


NB: £15 is payable directly to the tutor on the day for the items above.
