Felted Ornament Design Workshop @ Spectrum Art Gallery Tickets
Dec 14 @ 1:00 pm
Felted Ornament Design Workshop @ Spectrum Art Gallery | Essex | Connecticut | United States

This workshop will be a “needle felting” class for all levels. You will make a small 3-d felted ornament using the needle felting method, which is very gratifying and can be combined with the many other felting techniques. For this project you will use soft, colorful merino wool roving, special barbed needles yarn and embellishments. Workshop will begin with some simple brainstorming sketches. Then we will discuss the best shapes to form a foundation, choose a color palette and then learn the “ins and outs” of needle felting. The instructor will demonstrate different concepts so you will have lots of creative, exciting options. All materials are supplied but please bring a small sketch book or note pad and pencil.

Let's Build a Felted Snowman! @ Spectrum Art Gallery | Essex | Connecticut | United States

This workshop is a perfect introduction to the craft of wool felting. What wool felting is and the technique of producing fiber sculptures will be explained. Once you have built your first snowman, you will be skilled in making all types of three dimensional figures. The kit includes everything you need to get started: needles, felting handle, scissors, finger covers, foam pad, awl, and glue stick all stored in a container, plus the wool roving for the snowman. Because wool felting uses extremely sharp needles, parents should use discretion in enrolling young children. The snowman makes an adorable gift or ornament to hang on your Christmas tree.
