Needle Felted Critters: Online Course
Needle felting is fun and therapeutic...and who doesn’t have a little frustration to work through in a creative and positive way these days? In this virtual class with fiber arts instructor Laura Berlage, we will mail you a kit with all the supplies you need (just bring a scissors), including hand-dyed wool from her farm’s flock of sheep, needles, critter specific accoutrements, and a foam work surface. Laura will then guide you step-by-step for transforming the carded wool into your own adorable critter. Great for beginning and intermediate level felters, and no previous experience is required. Enjoy the process and make your own cute wool friend! You will have enough wool to make a second critter later, offering great practice in your newfound felting skills.
