"Needle Felting Animals"
August 1, 2019

Learn to make three-dimensional felt sculptures of animals using the needle-felting technique, working with barbed needles to turn wool fibers into a more condensed material. The class will start with an overview of wool types and needles that are used for felting. We will then experiment with various felting techniques and will work on prepping the wool and creating a wire skeleton for your sculpture. In the second half of the class we will add wool to the skeleton and apply the needle-felting techniques to complete the felt piece. All materials (wool and wool accents, felting needles, foam pads and wires for creating the skeleton) will be provided by the instructor.
