Needle felting is the process of using a barbed needle to repeatedly jab natural fibers causing the fiber to tangle and become compact into flat pieces or three-dimensional sculptures.
Though not difficult, there is more work involved in a project such as this that has many parts to make such as ears, nose, arms, legs, ears, tail, and accessories. If just learning to needle felt, you may want to choose a class with a simpler project and less parts to make.
Class participants must be 16 or older, but kids 12-15 may register with an adult companion also enrolled in the class.
