A square of firm foam ideal for use as a needle felting work surface. Measures 7 x 7 x 1.5 inches. We recommend using a block of foam as a working surface for all our needle felting kits.
NB. Due to current supply issues the colour of the foam may vary (grey, white or cream). The type of foam is exactly the same and is of equal density and firmness.
What is the foam for?
You use the foam block as a working surface to protect the needles and your table (or lap!). For needle felting you need something soft for the needles to go into whilst you're stabbing the wool. You can use a special felting brush or just a household sponge but our foam blocks are much firmer, will last longer meaning you can use one block of foam to make numerous pieces and is better suited to sculptural felting as you can also use it to help with shaping certain pieces, especially flat things such as wings and ears, as well as beaks and noses.
