Make 3D Needlefelt toadstools & mushrooms


This workshop is suitable for complete beginners as well as those with a little experience of the wonderful art of needle felting.

Using local wool, in an array of beautiful colours, you will learn the basic techniques of 3D needle felting to make your very own original mushroom/toadstool scene.

Course length will be approx 3 hours and will include a needlefelting kit for you to take home. You will mount your scene on a wood slice but also have the option to purchase a glass cloche at an additional charge of £10, payable to Hanne.

The workshop will take place in our purpose built creative space overlooking Coniston Water and the Old Man of Coniston. We will provide refreshments and sweet treats.


Hanne Crank is a local artist specialising in 3D needle felt art. Originally from Sheffield, Hanne moved to the South Lakes to concentrate on her art and live a more fulfilling life in this beautiful part of the world.

Hanne's needle felting journey began when she saw a tiny curled up fox at a friend’s house. After discovering this animal was made out of merino wool using a single needle she knew she had to learn more and has since taught herself the craft and become completely absorbed in the therapeutic process.

Hanne is still on her needle felting journey, as she continues to create new and original pieces. Always using the Lake District scenery and its local flora and fauna as inspiration, she finds the satisfaction of seeing a unique piece coming to life in her hands truly magical and forever intriguing.
