Fun with Needle Felting – Cacti & Succulents
Enjoy the look of nature’s beautiful desert plants without the prickles. In this beginner friendly felting workshop, you will learn how to make a solid 3D sculpture entirely from wool fibers. We will use a special barbed needle to felt our projects, learn how to add dimension to the basic shape of your cacti and add colored fibers to make a cacti bloom. After felting, we will plant our cacti in a small terracotta pot and add decorative rocks.
The $40 registration fee includes all materials.
