Product Details

In this needle felting class you'll be learning to sculpt a bear out of alpaca wool roving. Students can choose from a variety of colored fiber to 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 is not hard, but does take time, and requires 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 alpaca fiber, and a little imagination! No bears will look the same, and that is part of the fun.

This class is for all skill levels, but is a more involved class than some, due to the numerous bear body parts. If just learning to needle felt, you may want to choose a class with a simpler project. Unless of course, you're up for a challenge!

Class participants should be 16 or older, but kids 12-15 may register with an adult companion also enrolled in the class.

Instruction, felting needles, foam, and materials are provided and included in the fee for this class. These items are also available to purchase should you wish to do more felting at home.

Time Needed: 3 Hours
