Create your very own Irish Irish leprechaun, just in time for St Patrick's Day! In this fun-filled class you will be learning a process called needle felting. Needle felting is the process of using a single barbed needle to repeatedly jab alpaca/wool fibers causing the fiber to tangle and become compact in order to create a two-dimensional flat piece or three-dimensional sculpture.
You will be learning how to create a core shape, how to wrap roving around the shape to begin the needle felting process, and how to create other three-dimensional shapes such as arms, feet, hats, and a nose. You will learn step-by-step needle felting skills which will enable you to create other felted projects, while enjoying the company of other creative people whose leprechauns will all have their own personality.
There are no mistakes when it comes to needle felting. You are limited only by your imagination. No previous felting experience required.
Cost of class includes all materials and use of felting tools needed for project.
Time Needed: 3 Hours
Supply kits, felting foam, felting tools, and felting needles are available to purchase should you wish to do more felting at home.
