|Part II-Intro to Needle Felting (2D)–This is a basic felting class for students with little to no experience or knowledge of needle felting. In Part II, students will either continue embellishing their previously wet felted piece, or create an original 12”x12” piece of 2D felted fabric which the student can then transform into an item of their own choosing (small purse/bag, wall hanging, eyeglass case, coaster, etc). Topics covered will include: a brief history of wool and its use in felting, how felting occurs, and the felting process using the needle felting technique. Instructor demonstration and hands on assistance will provide students with a small felted sampler to take home. All materials are provided. If time permits, there will also be a quick demo of basic embroidery/3D techniques/beading that can be used to embellish the work.
Beginners age 8 and up. Due to use of felting needles, an adult must accompany child from 8-15 years old.
**Classes are independent of each other and students are not required to take Part I in order to take Part II**
