A “Beary” Fun Class!

 

Run Red Run Needle Felted Bear

I taught another needle felting class at Sweetwater Center for the Arts this month. Like last time, we went over basic needle felting techniques. But this time, instead of an owl, the class made a bear.

The students did a wonderful job sculpting the wool into cute little bears. The class was filled with mostly first-timers (and one repeat student) and I love how they each added their unique spin on the project.

I hope to teach another class in the near future. As soon as I know all the details, I’ll post them here.

Owl Be Darned! Needle Felting Class Was A Success!

The other day, I taught a needle felting workshop at Sweetwater Center for the Arts. We had a good turnout of enthusiastic participants who learned the basics of needle felting in one whirlwind, three-hour class. For the workshop, I created a stylized owl and the group followed along, each felting their own owl.

Everyone did a fantastic job and put their own creative spin on the project. I’m super proud of my students and the amazing job they all did. Since the workshop was such a success, I’ve already got another one scheduled for May — where we’ll be felting a bear!
