We’re excited to announce the bookings for ‘Be More Unicorn’ needle felting workshops are now open!

Come and feed your crafty soul – and be more unicorn! In this workshop you will be shown how to needle felt – this is a technique of blending fibres with a barbed needle to make a small soft unicorn to take home! Your unicorn can be any colour of the rainbow . This is a fun session where you can escape into the magical world of unicorns! This is a great opportunity to spend some time with your child and we offer a ‘mum and me’ ticket for 2 people.  All ages are welcome, due to using a needle it is only suitable to children over 9 yrs who can be safe with equipment and follow instructions. If you have a child and you would like to leave them while you go shopping and enjoy what the courtyard has to offer this option is available if they are over 13 years old. Many adults enjoy the therapeutic benefits of stabbing with a needle – this workshop is for all to feed their inner unicorn! (definitely NOT just for children!)

These workshops are brought to you by P J STAR Designs a mother daughter team extraordinaire!
