We will offer two sessions of this class:
10/30, 10am-12:30pm: Ages 8-12
10/30, 1:30-4:30pm: Adults & teens ages 13+
In this class students will learn how to create their own soft and fuzzy eight-legged friend! Each wooly spider will also include a magnet, allowing it stick to metal surfaces. Students will learn the process of needle felting and how to safely use the needle felting tools. Students do not need to have prior experience with felting, this is an entry level project. All felting supplies will be provided to students, with take-home tools to continue needle-felting on your own! For the youth class, please plan to arrive 10 minutes before the class is scheduled to begin to check your student in. Needle felting is the process of using specialized barbed needles to sculpt wool fiber. As the needle touches the wool, it grabs onto the fiber and compresses it together turning it into a solid shape.
