Needling felting is a fun craft and once you start it is hard to stop! By poking a special needle into colored wool, you can sculpt anything you can imagine. Artist LeBrie Rich will teach you about the tools and techniques for sculpting wool with a felting needle. In this class you'll make a clever little mushroom home. After the workshop you will be equipped with the skills to needle felt all kinds of animals and other small sculptures.

 

 

Fiber arts is a huge part of the culture in the Nordic countries. Felting has a rich history in the Nordic countries and there is a huge modern revival. The history goes beyond modern record keeping. During the cold months in Nordic countries crafting (especially fiber arts) is a great way to pass the time along with using resources that were traditionally on the farm and the land. Join us in this Nordic tradition with a modern take.
