Introduction to Needle Felting with Jenny Marion

Felt is defined as "a textile material that is produced by matting, condensing and pressing fibers together." In needle felting, felt is formed by repeatedly stabbing a needle into a piece of wool in order to stiffen and mold it into the desired shape. For the first session of this 2-part introductory needle-felting class, Jenny will teach students the basic techniques used to make an owl. In the second session students will learn how to felt over a simple wire armature to make a seahorse.

Since we will be working with sharp needles, participants must have adequate hand-eye coordination. Students must have completed the September 17 class in order to attend the September 24 class.

There will be an additional $12 supply fee payable to the instructor on the first day of class which includes a felting mat and 3 needles that students can keep for future use.

What to bring:
Supply fee: $12 payable to instructor
Sewing pins
Small craft pliers (if available)
Band-aids (just in case)
