FELTING WORKSHOP:  HOLIDAY GNOMES
This class introduces the technique known as 'dry felting', in which fleece fibers are turned into objects using a barbed needle. In this workshop, we will focus on creating holiday gnomes, first by making a basic body shape using white fleece and felting needles. The shape will be embellished with colored fleece to create an oufit of your choice, either realistic or embellished! And who knows, maybe a cane or winter hat will find it's way into the mix! No previous experience required. This workshop is appropriate for ages 11+.
