Online Workshop 12/13: Needle-Felted Animal Ornaments

In this workshop, participants will learn the basics of felting while making a felted ornament! We will discover how to recognize and use different wool and felting needles and follow along to make a felted animal step-by-step. We will start by forming a basic egg shape using core fiber wool, then add wool roving in other colors to transform the egg form into an owl, seal, or something else! During the workshop, you will almost complete one entire animal but then have enough wool left to make one or two more, depending on the size. Participants will also have lots of opportunities to customize their creations by choosing different color combinations, expressions or gestures, or even choosing to make a different type of animal.
