Intro to Needle Felting
The technique of needle felting allows you to create shapes and characters of all kinds using only a needle and wool roving. Amber will teach you to sculpt the wool so you can create your own figures and shapes from scratch, giving them expressiveness and personality at the stroke of a needle.

You will learn to create a very basic form, a circle, using just a needle and wool! Amber will also demonstrate essential techniques such as how to join pieces and hide unions.

You will transform this ball into an ornament or a hanging as you choose. You can choose to either do a holiday ornament or a simple hanging decoration as you like!

Afterwards, Amber will show you how to use additional colors to needle felt patterns and shapes onto the ball. So come prepared with some ideas!

What You Need
It is not necessary any previous knowledge, since Amber will guide you, step by step, throughout the process. Here are the materials you will need.

  • Small Needle Felting Foam Pad - ~4" x ~6" - with 2 felting needles
  • Large needles for stringing.
  • Twine for Stringing
  • Wool Roving
