Product Details

Sorry, but February 11th, 2023 class is full.

In this needle felting class you'll be learning to sculpt a bear out of roving (produced during the process of making spun yarn from wool fleece). Needle felting is the process of using a barbed needle to repeatedly jab the roving causing the fiber to tangle and become more compact. In this class you will learn the basics of needle felting a three dimensional object, how to create a core shape, apply an outer color, build arms and feet, if desired, and create facial features. Students can choose different colors and each will design their own unique bear. As time allows, students can needle felt "bear accessories" such as hats, scarves, etc.

Needle felting is an easy-to-learn technique that involves lots of poking with a barbed needle (also can be effective stress relief), to shape and sculpt the natural fiber. You'll be surprised at what you can create with a needle, some fiber, and a little imagination! No bears will look the same, and that is part of the fun!

SKILL LEVEL
This class is for all skill levels, but is a more involved class than some, due to the numerous bear body parts we will be making. There will also be a simpler design option for those that have never needle felted before, which will allow beginners to learn and understand the process of needle felting without all of the details that those with some experience may want to tackle.

INCLUDED IN FEE
Instruction, felting needles, foam, and materials are provided and included in the fee for this class. Felting Supplies are also available to purchase should you want to do more needle felting at home.

CLASS TIME
Class will begin at 1pm and finish about 4pm.

INSPIRATION
For some bear inspiration, see my Needle Felted Bears Pinterest board here.

KITS
Bear Needle Felting Kits are now available for felting fun at home. Great gifts too!
