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. Dry needle felting involves the use of a sharp, barbed needle and stabbing the wool to connect fibers to build density and form.
Participants will learn to felt one or two baby penguins about 4 inches high.
