Lyn Slade, an accomplished needle felter will be holding a one-day workshop at the Jaffrey Civic Center on Sunday, May 6th from 12-4. $80 will include all needle felting specific materials. Please bring small sharp scissors, a pencil, a ruler, inspiration, and a snack.
Needle felting is fun and fast. The methods to achieve many effects can be learned in one workshop. No experience is necessary. Ages 12 and up are welcome. In this 4 hour class we will work in needle felting appliqué (flat, 2-D), making a unique landscape made on a wool fabric background. Each student will make a picture of their choice, approx. 8” x 10”. Please bring several landscape photos for inspiration. Lyn will help you pick the one that is most workable in needle felting. Photos with a lot of detail or sparkling light are difficult in needle felting and not recommended for your first project. Although wool doesn’t have the endless variation of color that paint allows, you will have 64 colors to work with. We’ll mat your art before you leave so you’ll have a completed project. You will go home with the needle felting needle and the foam work surface so you can continue to explore this craft on your own. Class minimum 4 students, class maximum 12 students.
