Get ready for spring with this fun half day workshop! Explore the craft of needle felting while making a cute bunny sculpture 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 a small bunny sculpture.
MATERIALS FEE: $25 total for tools and supplies: the $15 Project Pack includes all required supplies to make one small bunny, including an assortment of core and top coat wool. Each student will also need their own felting surface and needles.
