Introduction to needle (dry)-felting
Adult Workshop: Come and express your creative artistic self with this new way of working with carded, naturally-dyed wool fleece. Using a special barbed needle and colored fleece, we will learn basic needle-felting techniques to create pictorial pieces (like painting from a palette of colors) and sculptural pieces (jewelry, dolls, toys, animals, magical creatures, etc.) Also, we will discover some of the broad range of needle-felting applications, from decorating items of clothing and wool crafts to creating unique craft items and artistic pieces. Perfect for creating novelty items and uniquely personal gifts.
