Bear Needle Felting Class
February 8 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
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 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 some of the details that those with experience may want to tackle.
Class participants should be 16 or older, but kids 12-15 may register with an adult companion also enrolled in the class.
Time Needed: 3 Hours
