Book Description

As one of the UK's leading needle felters, Fi Oberon is much in demand for her
gorgeous animal sculptures created from felt. Taking inspiration both from the farm where she grew up and the countryside and seaside in the north of England where she lives, she has created a delightful collection of projects. Ranging from simple to more complex, they include a charming selection of animals found in different natural environments, from a woodland owl and hedgehog, to a farmyard cow and hen with her chicks, to a polar bear and penguin from the frozen plains of Antarctica. Divided into four chapters
'Uplands', 'Frozen Plains', 'Farmyard & Fields' and 'Coast' each adorable creature is presented in a specially designed set to reflect its habitat, and there are additional instructions for making incidental items such as dandelions,  mushrooms, plants and trees.
As an experienced tutor, Fi's instructions are clear and engaging, as she teaches new skills and techniques while encouraging experimentation and self-expression. Her irresistible felt sculptures will appeal to animal and nature lovers as well as crafters.
