Needle Felted Easter Egg Workshop
Learn the magical process of creating felt from wool fibers in this needle felting workshop. Starting with a styrofoam egg core, students will cover it in a background color (or pattern) and use specialty barbed needles to firm up the fibers. Students will then learn how to make dots, lines and other shapes so they can decorate their egg with colorful wool patterns of their choice. At the end of this 2-hour class, students will have a beautiful one-of-a-kind Easter egg that can be cherished for years.
The $38 registration fee includes materials for one egg. Additional kits of styrofoam egg and wool are available for $5 each.
