Meet the Seller - Dorset Team Christmas Fair - Lauren from Apulina

Name: Lauren
Shop Name: Apulina
Located in: Bournemouth
Sells: Needle Felt Animals and More

Maker's Story:
I started felting several years ago and didn't stop! I love working with wool, I use a variety of wools from different sheep breeds using a technique called needle felting to build up layers of wool to create three dimensional animals and art work such as pet portraits and cards for special occasions. I also love a challenge, so if you want something made in felt drop me a message! With felting you are only limited by your imagination. Even better is harnessing the ideas of the children whose drawings I make come to life in felt. Now they really do have some talent! I am also a trained teacher and teach needle felt classes. If you are in east Dorset and fancy learning how to needle felt then drop me a line. It is a great activity for hen parties, getting together for a natter, teenage parties etc.

Dorset Team Christmas Fair: Lauren will be selling her needle felted animals, cards and gifts at the Dorset Team Christmas Fair on Saturday 3rd December at the Allendale Centre in Wimborne.

Please come along, meet Lauren and our other makers and sellers.

Doors open at 10am and close at 4pm and it is free entry.
