FW7 - Felt a Witch or a Santa - October 26, 2019

Dates: October 26, 2019

Class Times: Sat 9am-4pm

Instructor:  Sue Carey

Open Studio: None

For Halloween, you can create your own wool witch and for Christmas, your own wool Santa. During this basic needle felting class, we will concentrate on learning the most common method of felting a simple human face. It will be the student’s choice on whether to work on a Santa or witch, or both, depending on how much detail the student wants to construct. Besides facial features, we will be working on creating hats and other accessories for our ornament. All material is provided. Students will be able to take home their approximately 3” tall ornament and felting needle, which can be used in future projects.

Materials Fee:  $15

As a shepherd, she has gained extensive knowledge of wool including proper ways of nurturing, genetics, handing, and processing.
