Needle Felted Fall Decor

Needle felting is a fun and addictive craft. The wool is very forgiving as it can be continually reshaped, similar to sculpting with clay. In this introductory class, we will discuss the variety of wools, tools, and techniques used to form desired shapes in creating three-dimensional objects. Students will sculpt two medium sized pumpkins or gourds, with techniques that can be transferred to unlimited ideas. Each student's work will be different as we work with a number of choices of type of fleece and colors used. Additional kits and tools will be available for purchase.
