Hybrid- In-person and Virtual
Learn the basics of needle felting wool and creating 3-dimensional sculptures with Shaker Village neighbor and friend Betsey Leslie of Ewes to You Farm in New Gloucester. Needle felting is the process of transforming wool into 3D objects using a barbed needle. When you felt wool, you’re agitating the fibers so they bond together, creating a solid fabric
We will create a medium pumpkin, a small silhouette cat pumpkin, and a medium gourd– just in time for Halloween! Each participant will receive a full kit of all supplies needed to make these three needle felted sculptures plus the basic tools to keep you going in your felting journey:
- (5) Needles in 3 sizes (36, 38, 40)
- (1) Foam felting block
- (3) 14gr core wool in white
- (1) 14 gr hombre orange wool
- (5) 4 gr wool in brown, deep orange, and red orange
- (3) 2 gr wool in dark brown, brown, and buttercup
- Assorted Masham curls
All the wool is hand-dyed by Betsey, custom made for this workshop and projects. We will work on the core of all 3 projects and start shading the colors into them.
All materials will be provided. All levels welcome. All ages welcome.
