The Amazing Art of Needle Felting
Needle Felting uses felted wool, created from the primitive skill of wool felting, to create beautiful images and objects of art. In this class, each student will make a felted scene or abstract using different colors of wool roving, wool blanket as a base, and needle-felting needles. Scenes can made into a wall hanging or as embellishment on a simple woolen bag or pouch. Students will also make small sewn and felted stuffed figures or shapes and experiment with needle felting small animal figures as time allows. Materials are provided, but if you have a wool sweater that you shrunk on accident or a wool blanket you would like to use as a base, bring it along! We hope you enjoy this fascinating form of “Primitive Art”.
