Instructor: Jane Lybecker
We’ll practice basic needle-felting skills (wrapping and stabbing) by making an Easter egg, then graduate to making a sleepy bunny. Sheep’s wool is used for felting, along with a felting surface (burlap bag of rice), needle pen, and a tool to wrap the wool into shapes. We’ll use rougher core wool for the core/center of our creations, then add smoother brighter top coat wool over the core for finish and details. Wool is a very forgiving sculpting material.
We will – to quote Sara Renzulli, an amazing wool artist – “Stab it to life!”
