Intro to Needle Felting


Students will learn how to needle felt and assemble different component  parts to make a final creation all your own! This relatively new fiber  art has been gaining popularity in the craft world, appealing to both  veteran and novice crafters. Needle felting uses special barbed needles  to sculpt un-spun wool into three-dimensional objects. After the class  students will have their own felted creation, an understanding of how  needle felt is done, and the knowledge of how to create and assemble  parts into a felt creation of your own at home. Each student will  receive a felting needle and enough wool for one animal to finish in  class or at home.
