Tracey Benton from Benton's Menagerie spent a day with us making a needlefelted hare.She uses wool from rare breeds such as Swaledale and Herdwick sheep. All the materials were provided by her so that members could experiment before deciding whether they would like to make more. The body, Head, ears, legs and arms were all made separately before being needlefelted together. A lovely relaxing day. Some of our hares are shown in this picture below.
