This is a fun intro class to the cool process of needle felting also known as wool painting. This is a dry felting process using a barbed needle and wool roving to create a felted Jack O'Lantern. Suggested age is 10 and up due to the sharp barbed needle required. The dry felting process of needle felting is achieved by continuously poking and stabbing the pure wool roving which causes the fibers to interlock and felt. Students will form and felt a pumpkin shape. We will felt in the grooves...
I love the feel and look of needle felted items/art and have been doing it for about 4 years. I have offered classes and workshops at various local county Fine Arts facilities and excited to share my love of this artform by offering classes online.
Items to Purchase: Barbed needles (at least 2 in case of breakage) - Cost is about $5.99 for a package of 5 2 oz packages of wool roving in orange, green, white and black - Cost less than $2 per color or you could buy a variety pack Small foam block - Cost is about $2 Sometimes I find needle and foam block combination packages in Hobby Lobby for $1.99 I get my supplies at Hobby Lobby locally. Some Michaels have a few items. Another option is to order from Amazon, Ebay etc.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
