Needle Felted Painting 6 Week Class
It’s time to learn needle felting! Needle felting is the art of sculpting wool with special barbed needles. Stabbing the wool over and over again meshes the wool fibers together, creating a firm, textile object. Needle felting is an ideal craft, because it has a quick learning curve, requires minimal supplies and can be done almost anywhere.
In this 6 week class, you will learn step by step how to create this needle felted landscape. We will focus on a new section and technique each week.
A needle felted landscape painting is created entirely from needle felted fiber. Layers and layers of dyed fibers are matted down with aa barbed felting needle, bringing the textured 2D piece to life.
