Prepare yourself for cuteness, this CraftJam will be aww-some. It’s time to learn needle felting!
Needle felting is the art of sculpting wool with special barbed needles. Stabbing the wool over and over again meshes the wool fibers together, creating a firm, textile object. Needle felting is an ideal craft-- it has a quick learning curve, requires minimal supplies and can be done almost anywhere.
In this three-hour CraftJam, JamMaster Frannie will teach you:
- What materials to use
- How to design your project
- How to turn unspun wool into a miniature 3D creation
- How embellish and finish your creation
This class is beginner-friendly; no experience necessary! We’ve got all the materials you’ll need ready, including felting needles and a selection of colorful roving wool. You'll walk away with a finished project and techniques to continue crafting beyond the classroom. As an added bonus, you'll finally understand exactly why your wool sweater shrunk in the washing machine.
