1- 4pm at Xpace Cultural Centre
Needle felting, or dry felting, is a process by which wool fibres are tangled and compressed together to create two or three dimensional artworks. Artists can create abstract sculptural pieces, small figures, or images using raw, hand-dyed wool and special needles. Wool items, such as blankets, scarves, and sweaters can also be embellished with shapes and patterns using the technique.
The goal of this workshop is to introduce participants to working with raw wool fibres, various hand-dyeing techniques, and to the process of needle felting.
There is no experience necessary for the workshop – anyone is welcome.
Materials will be provided, but feel free to bring any of your own, such as wool yarn, beads, embroidery thread, or any wool items you’d like to customize.
The workshop is free. Please RSVP to [email protected]
