So I taught my first needle felting workshop today. I was crapping myself!! I've never taught before.
And to have to explain what I was doing and trying to be coherent was very scary. It was how to make a teddy bear.
But it went well and I think everyone had fun. They all got to bring home a bear at the end of the 4 hours. They did choose to do a more advanced pose: the reclining teddy bear, so that was a challenge. But I think they all did really well for a first go. Four hours was the max for beginners I think, as arm fatigue was beginning to set in! And quite a few finger pricks too! All part of the learning process.
Here are some pics:
