In this class you will learn to needle felt a three dimensional Santa out of alpaca/wool fiber. This project involves a number of parts to make and attach, so a previous needle felting class would be helpful, but not required. There will be a simpler Santa design option (last picture) for those who have never needle felted before, or just like the simpler option.
Needle felting is the process of repeatedly pushing a barbed needle into a mass of fiber, agitating, compressing, and locking the fibers together into a more dense mass of fiber. Think of it as being like sculpting, with fiber and a needle, instead of clay.
All materials are included, felting tools and foam surface to work on are provided for use in class. Great gift or Christmas decoration for your own home!
Class participants must be 16 or older, but kids 12-15 may register with an adult companion also enrolled in the class.
