Needle Felting Workshop

Needle Felting Workshop

Wednesday, April 24th
5:30pm to 8pm

At a Rover Studios Needle Felting Workshop, you will learn the basics of using hand felting needles to turn carded wool (Roving) into soft sculptures. Projects can include anything from realistic pet portraits to soft handmade toys to imaginative whimsical creations made completely by hand and in the company of a creative and convivial crowd.

In needle felting, wool is compressed and shaped by jabbing a barbed needle into a ball or mat of wool the tangle and link the fibers. The process is surprisingly soothing and the results are routinely charming!

All the tools and materials will be provided for the initial $25 fee. Returning crafters, Frequent Felters, fee is $20 for materials and the space.

Tools are sharp and 3D projects are most appropriate for 14 and up. If you want to include a younger crafter let me know and an suitable 2D project can be included.

April’s workshop will focus on posable 3D creations with wire armatures inside, but simpler project can always be arranged Workshop leader, Xan, comes from a long line of fiber artists.
