205 · Fairy Felt Folk · Edwina Sutherland

Create Fabulous Fairy Tale Felt Folks with needle felting. You will soon be hooked on needle felting with this class, even if you’ve never tried it before. Needle felting is the most satisfying way to see a character come to life. Created over an armature, bodies are sculpted and dressed, heads and faces emerge, hands are articulated, all using wool fiber and a simple felting tool. Each student will create a one-of-a-kind piece, using fairy tales as inspiration for their character.
