Ages 10 and up! In this workshop we will explore the many ways to work with fleece and needle felting to create functional and decorative works of art. Students will learn several different techniques such as blending colors and adding textures, and will create projects such as small containers and ornaments. The highlight of the workshop will involve creating an 8 x 10 felted landscape. Learning needle felting is very uncomplicated and successful projects are easily completed. No experience is necessary. All materials are provided, but bring fleece or other needle felting tools if you have them and would like to use them .
