Introduction to Needlefelting


Introduction to Needlefelting


Sculpting with wool? Really! Using a sharp, barbed needle and some fluffy, wool roving, you'll learn how to create small 3-D shapes. Kit, needle and felting foam all included!


What It's All About

Needlefelting is a process of felting wool using a sharp barbed needle. It's quicker and more precise than wet felting and allows you to make 3D objects or embellish onto a fabric surface. It's a lot of fun, once you get the hang of it! Join our instructor for a short introduction to needlefelting. You'll learn how to make basic shapes and "sculpt" a bug (or possibly) two in this class. Your registration fee includes everything you need: fibre, needlefelting needle and foam mat. Our instructor will show you how to use a needlefelting needle, create a shape, determine if your piece is felted properly and create a smooth finish.
