Workshop - Needle Felting Animals - Saturday April 6th



Needle Felting Animals (one session)
Saturday April 6th
12-3pm (3 hours total instruction)

Join studio co-founders bekky and Keith to learn the art of making tiny animals out of wool!  We will start with simple armature building, how to plan out your project, and how to build out of basic shapes.  There will be a couple of quick demos on tips and tricks to create different types of texture in your animal - from fluffy fur to striped coats.  We’ll then spend the rest of our time together working on crafting and building our creatures.

All materials and refreshments are provided (includes your own felting needles and foam to take home).

Due to the size of our studio and parking lot we have a maximum enrollment for all workshops of 6 participants.  Sign up early to ensure your spot!

Please note that due to the necessity to purchase materials and supplies ahead of time all of our workshops are non-refundable.  Should something arise that makes you unable to attend we are happy to offer credit towards a future workshop of your choosing.
