FELTING NATURE: Birds & Flowers

Saturday and Sunday 10-4 October 18 & 19
tuition $180 Materials & Tool kit $45

Students will explore a variety of wet and needle felting techniques to turn wool fleece into a variety of 2 & dimensional forms. DAY ONE we will focus on wet felting. Students will create beautiful flowers, leaves, sheet felt, ropes and core shapes we will use on day two. DAY TWO we will focus on needle felting. Students will assemble a small sculptural bird using needle felting techniques and the core shapes they created (day one) Handmade copper feet and glass eyes created by the instructor will be provided. Some felting(wet and/or needle) or sculptural experience is helpful but not necessary. This is a beginner friendly class, using birds and flowers as a fun jumping off point, but hopefully students will gain the confidence to take on larger future felting projects.
