Learn how to sculpt with wool in this beginner needle felting workshop. Students will first learn to make a ball shape and then decorate it. Workshop includes all materials necessary to make the three ornaments as shown. Participants may only finish one in class but will leave with the know-how to finish the rest at home. Tools and finger guards will be available for use during the class. We will also cover needle felting basics such as terminology, where to find inspiration and support for other projects, and where to source the best supplies. No experience necessary however all students must have good hand/eye coordination, manual dexterity and be able to work with focus and care - felting needles are sharp!
