Join us for a day of needle felting as you learn how to make a beautiful eastern bluebird portrait in a relaxed and supportive environment. In this intermediate level workshop, you will learn about color blending, layering, and creating facial details, as you sculpt a three-dimensional needle felted eastern bluebird portrait from start to finish.
It is recommended that you have a basic understanding of needle felting techniques and tools, as well as several completed needle felting projects under your belt before taking this workshop. All materials are included, and you will get to take your set of felting needles and foam pad home too. A light lunch is included with your choice of freshly brewed coffee or tea.
Date: Saturday, October 12
Time: 9:00am – 4:00pm
Location: Grey Fox Mercantile – 70 Genesee Street, New Hartford, NY 13413
Grey Fox Felting will be a part of the New York Makers Village at the 10th Annual Beekman 1802 Harvest Festival, and we’re so excited to host this special workshop at the event!
In this beginner felting workshop, each participant will learn how to layer colorful wool fiber to create a felted ball, which will then be cut open at the end of the workshop to reveal a unique geode! We’ll be using the process of wet felting, which requires only soap, water, wool, and your hands to create felt. Unlike needle felting, there are no needles involved in this process, making it a wonderful activity for children as well as adults! All materials are included, and you’ll leave the workshop with a beautiful geode to display in your home.
