This class is designed to introduce students to needle felting with a simple, seasonal project achievable in two hours’ time. Perfect for beginners. No experience necessary.

Felting is older than spinning or weaving and found in many world cultures.  Felting wool means to agitate the fibers so that they bond together into a non-woven fabric or a three-dimensional form. Felting is often accomplished using water, soap and a hand rubbing process (wet felting).  Needle felting (dry felting) involves the use of a sharp, barbed needle and stabbing the wool to connect fibers to build density and form.

Needle Felted Acorns

Needle felt wool acorn shapes in a variety of sizes and colors, glue into single and double acorn caps to complete a set of eight decorative acorns and one oak acorn branch. Perfect to use as a table decoration, add to a holiday wreath, tie onto a gift box. Great hostess gift.

Needle Felted Gnome

This little gnome is fast and easy to make as a gift topper, ornament or a pin for your coat. Needle felt a flat gnome and choose one of these three finishing options.

Needle Felted Berries

The simplest form of needle felting, little round berries, are artfully colored and combined with cut and stitched felt leaves to top a gift box, or pin to your hat or coat.

Please note: We’ve changed how each student pays for the material used during each in-person class.  Each registration fee now combines the material fee and the instructor fee.  For this class, the material fee covers a knife provided by the instructor (which you will then take home) plus the wood used in the class. We now collect the material fee directly based on feedback from instructors and participants: instructors can focus more on teaching their class, and students don’t need to remember to bring the material fee to pay directly to the instructor.

NOTE: Be aware we may cancel class if a minimum number of registrations is not reached. We work to balance teachers’ need to plan for a class with students’ busy schedules — not an easy task. Please register as early as possible!
