Needle Felted Cardinal with Firefly Studios

Join Firefly Studios to create your very own felted cardinal picture using barbed felting needles and wool. In this class, we will be using dyed wool and fine felting needles to create a lovely one- of-a-kind winter bird ‘painting’. Though no paint is actually involved in this class, the process is similar. Each participant will be provided with dyed wool colors to create the bird and fabric backing as the base. This class goes over the needle felting process, care and needle safety, and demonstration. Examples will be provided. When finished, these felted pictures are beautiful framed, or wrapped around a small canvas. Finished picture is approx. 5”x5″ with a large fabric border.

About the Instructor Sam:
I am a self-taught felt artist, and have been making felt since being introduced to both needle felting and wet felting in 2009. The sculptural qualities of wool are impressive, making creative possibilities seemingly endless. I glean much of my inspiration from the natural environment, particularly patterns, colors, and shapes. From there, I create various types of items including vessels, wall art pieces, sculptures, jewelry, and wearable felted items that are nuno felted.  Along with working in the studio, I also regularly teach classes concerning these art forms at varying locations and age groups.
