needle felted chickadee

We’re excited to welcome back Karen Englebretson for another needle felting class. In this fast-paced class, you will learn to needle felt a three-dimensional chickadee from core wool and apply lifelike characteristics using merino prefelt and merino roving. You will also learn finishing details for glass bead eyes, mounting, and hanging as an ornament.

Participants will complete one bird and leave with enough supplies to make a second one on their own.
