Create your own felted flowers

Shuttles and Needles, Adyar is conducting a ‘Needle felting Workshop’ for beginners on Nov.17 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Needle felting is a process which uses barbed needles to interlock wool fibres to form a more condensed material. As the felting needle is moved up and down, the barbs on the needles catch the scales of the wool and entangle them into place. The participants will be guided to create their own colourful felted flowers.

Shuttles & Needles is an experiential haven for art lovers that aim to bring to light, the joy and therapeutic effects of Textile Art. The place is equipped with world class hand looms, computerised hand looms, table top looms, spinning wheels, fibre arts tools and, a wide range of yarns and fibres to practise the craft. The place also has yarns suitable for crochet and knitting, in addition to weaving.
