In this needle felting class you’ll be learning to sculpt a bear out of alpaca wool roving. Students can choose from a variety of colored fiber to design their own unique bear. As time allows, students can needle felt “bear accessories” such as hats, scarves, etc.
Needle felting is an easy-to-learn technique that’s not hard, but does take time, and requires lots of poking with a barbed needle (also can be effective stress relief), to shape and sculpt the natural fiber. You’ll be surprised at what you can create with a needle, some alpaca fiber, and a little imagination! No two bears will look the same, and that is part of the fun.
This class is for all skill levels, though is a more involved class than some due to the numerous bear body parts. If just learning to needle felt, you may want to choose a class with a simpler project. Unless of course, you’re game for a challenge!
Class participants should be 16 or older, but kids 12-15 may register with an adult companion also enrolled in the class.
Instruction, felting needles, foam, and materials are provided and included in the fee for this class.
