Workshop for Children: Needle-Felted Whimsical Wool Pictures
East or West,
Home is Best.
Come learn the basics of needle-felting and create vibrant, 3-dimensional, raised wool relief pictures with master felter Jzin Teng of CastleofCostaMesa.Com! This unique natural wool fiber picture brings warmth, homey intimacy and a smile to brighten your home, office or child’s room. We will be making this picture plus you can create one more of your own choice. Wool pictures are stunning on your Christmas tree, or given as homemade birthday cards, baby shower gifts, as your special valentine, birthday or Christmas gifts. Enroll in this class and start making your own stunning handmade gifts! Wool pictures are so quick and easy to make and they can look very stunning and unique. It is also a very forgiving medium. If you make a mistake, you simply pull out and re-compose your picture and felt it in. This is much easier than crayons and is 3 dimensional! – Jzin
