Needle felting for everyone! Beginners and masters alike will love making a sweet-faced little sheep. The sculptures will be made using wool roving, curly locks, and glass eyes. Participants will be taught the basics of needle felting and will leave with lots of transferable techniques and tricks to use on future projects.
No previous wool felting experience is needed.
