Needle Felting Workshop with Neysa Russo
March 16 @ 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM$125
Needle felting is a simple needling technique that uses barbed needles to decorate a felt surface with design. There will be an abundance of designs to choose from that are perfect for people who just want to sample this technique and more complex projects for those who would like a challenge. Along the way, you will build your needling skills, gain design experience and experiment with color. Simple design shapes combine to create beautifully unique and personal tapestries. While we needle, we can talk about inspiration, composition, color choices, needle varieties, fiber, felting history and many techniques are offered to keep your felting moving forward. You will also gain insight into the basic principles of wet felting in a way that is straightforward and accessible using readily available equipment. No skill required but you must be able to pinch the needles. Beginners Welcome!
