Forage & Felt: Wool needle felting with leaves and twigs”
Needle felting is a relaxing and easy to learn technique of sculpting wool fibers using barbed needles. Sonia will teach you all the basics; then you will have the opportunity to play with the materials and explore the process of combining leaves and twigs with wool roving into a felted wool collage or sculpture. This is a wonderful opportunity for adults to enjoy relaxed connection with each other, and with a younger person in your life- your child/grandchild/niece/nephew/
All levels welcome/No previous knowledge required. Intergenerational pairs are encouraged (age minimum 8, or a very mature younger person who can safely handle a sharp needle with adult supervision).
