Tom Bishop's 2019 Chicago International
Thursday, April 25, 2019
5:00pm - 10:00pm
Tracey Howard & Sharon Light
Join us and create the 3-dimensional needle felt animal of your choice in this fun felting workshop! You will learn the techniques of ‘poking’ wool roving with specialty-barbed needles to dry felt an animal in the scale of your choice. No prior experience needed.
The Chicago International is our only workshop where we encourage you to choose any animal you want to felt. You can make one of our models or bring pictures of your own. The animals can be realistic or fanciful. We will help you create!
We provide all the materials and tools needed to complete the sculpture. You will take home a needle-felt animal, a Needle Felt Techniques pattern for future reference, and the needle-felt tools we use in class: foam pad, set of needles and a needle holder.
Due to the range of possibilities we require pre-class information so we will have the correct tools and materials available for you.
