Learn the basics of needle felting to create a Santa, gnome or elf ornament! We'll use dyed woo lroving, natural curly locks and a pre-made cone shape to sculpt little fuzzy people with pointed hats. We'll talk about the mechanics of felting - how it works, what tools make it easier, and how to make shapes at home in the washing machine. You'll end up with one ornament measuring about four inches tall. No felting experience is required. Tickets available at studioagogo.yapsody.com
Use an upcycled sweater to hand-stich a 4-6" pumpkin for your fall decor. You'll learn simple hand-stitching techniques, including a running stitch, gathering stitch and ladder stitch. You'll also learn how to cut and square fabric using a rotary cutter and mat, and then how to stuff and close a three-dimensional object. We'll talk about how to make your own felted wool in the washing machine, and you can purchase more materials to make a whole patch of pumpkins at home, if you like.
Just $12 to make one pumpkin, with additional supplies available for $5 a kit. Buy your tickets early and save your seat through the link below.
Color choices will be orange, grey/tan, green or white with green or brown stems.
For adults and teens.
Sewing skills are not required. Participants should bring a pair of fabric scissors, but we will have scissors to share.
