Come join Rockland Recreation and Jen from The Felted Bee to make a little leprechaun from wool for St. Patrick's Day using the technique of needle felting!
In this beginner class you will learn the basics of needle felting.
We will learn safety, tips and tricks and you will go home with a little needle felted leprechaun and the beginner knowledge of needle felting.
Needle felting is a technique of using a very sharp, barbed needle to repeatedly jab into the wool to create felt. The wool becomes tangled and compressed by the needle to create various three dimensional forms.
