In this beginner's needle felting class you'll be learning to sculpt a roly poly owl out of alpaca wool! You'll learn how to create a core shape, wrap it with roving, and begin basic needle felting. You'll then learn how to create round shapes for eyes, use a felting stick to make a beak, create wings on the felting foam, and techniques for adding whatever details you choose. Needle felting is an easy-to-learn technique and is not difficult. This fun craft just takes time and lots of poking with a barbed needle which tangles the fibers together in order to shape and sculpt the natural fiber.
Come see what you can create with a needle and some alpaca fiber ... good stress relief too!
