Instructor: Jessica Harris
Learn the basics of wet and needle felting. Students will learn how to create small creatures, such as moths with feathery antennae, wiry pipe cleaner legs, tissue paper wings and bright, fuzzy bodies, ladybugs, spiders, and other amazing itty-bitties inspired from our natural world. Students will be given handouts and learn general insect anatomy. Samples and books will be available for reference. All materials are included. Ages 8+

*Please note: This workshop includes the use of a sharp needle into felt and foam. Students have full use of the needle and work it manually themselves. Parents are welcome to drop their children off or stay to assist if they are apprehensive about the needles, but so far there hasn't been any casualties :) Patience and focus are key.
