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.
