Here is another great summer class we are repeating because it was just so fun. Don’t wait to register. These classes fill quickly!!Ticket Information
Needle felting is a process that sculpts wool into any shape you imagine. Wool fibers are covered with scales. When you agitate the fibers, the scales lock together and thus, the felting occurs. In needle felting we use special barbed needles that lock the scales of the fiber together. What this looks like in real time, is stabbing fluffy colorful wool over and over with sharp needles. Wet felting uses that same ‘shock’ factor to agitate the fibers into a smooth piece. We will be using a variety of fibers to create this jellyfish including fiber from Marcia’s beautiful alpacas!
We will begin with the wet felting process and then break for lunch. Please pack your own lunch. Enjoy meeting the alpacas or taking a peek in the shop if you like. After the break, we will be needle felting and adding the tentacles. I can’t wait for this class!!!
