NEEDLE FELTING BASICS (LEVEL 1): PUMPKIN
October 17 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm$40.00
Join us for this fun half day workshop to explore the craft of needle felting with fiber artist Libby Mortensen. Learn and practice basic wool sculpting techniques, including wrapping and shaping, blending colors, and surface felting. Learn about basic tools, felting surfaces, gauges of needles and their best uses, and types of wool best suited for needle felting. Students will make either 2 small pumpkins or one large pumpkin in the style of their choice to display or use as a pincushion (face on pumpkin optional.) Suitable for adults and older teens with some crafting experience. MATERIALS FEE: $25 total for tools and supplies: the $15 Project Pack includes all required supplies to make one large pumpkin or 2 small pumpkins. Each student will also need their own felting surface and needles. If they don’t already have them, a $10 Tool Kit is available, which includes a felting pad, an assortment of felting needles, and a small wooden needle holder. Both will be available for purchase before class.
