Get Started: Needle Felting • October 19

, ,

Wednesday, October 19, 6 – 8 pm

Kaylyn Gerenz

Join the needle felting craze!  Using colorful wool roving, a cookie cutter for a template, and a special needle, learn this special process to create shape and blend color. Students will make a small, felted artwork that can become a patch, pin, hanging ornament, or whatever else you can imagine!  This process is perfect to carry forward easily, on your own, to work with other fabrics, garments, for mending, or developed into a more sculptural approach. Images displayed are represented of possible shapes used in the class–no supplies are needed for this class.  Your class group will use stash from our inventory, so all supplies are provided for free for use in the class.

Kaylyn Gerenz (she/her) is an educator and artist in St. Paul, MN, who started needle felting over a decade ago. She uses fiber as a main element in her professional artwork to communicate the urgency to document memories and history, and continues to explore the idea of flesh and fabric as evocative containers.
