Felted Forest Friends • November 10

Wednesday, November 10, 6 – 9 pm

Kaylyn Gerenz

Experience the magic of needle felting as we turn fuzzy felt into a furry friend. This introduction to sculptural needle felting will explore the basic techniques of creating miniature felted wool sculpture. Learn how to combine simple shapes–spheres and freeform–into complex forms by fusing them together. Then work into the surface to add detail, transforming wool roving into a friendly forest chipmunk or squirrel with a poke of a special felting needle. We will even treat your new friend to a fresh, oven-baked clay acorn! Materials fee $20, payable to the instructor.
