Needle Felting for the Young and the Young at Heart

Felt a bird, make a Christmas tree ornament; this is a class for the young and for the young at heart (12 years of age and up). All tools and supplies will be provided to felt a simple bird ornament or you can take the skills you observe in the demonstrations and apply them to a marvel of your own making. No experience is necessary to learn the basics of needle felting, and you will be opened up to a world of creation that is limited only by your imagination. Participants in this workshop will learn how to transform a styrofoam ball, bits of pipe cleaner or just the wool roving itself into a colourful, three dimensional ornament. There will be lots of sharing and support so you can take home a piece to be proud of.
