SOLD OUT: Needle Felted Red Squirrel with Firefly Studios (Session 2)

Join Firefly Studios to create your very own red squirrel sculpture and felted acorn, or mushroom, using barbed felting needles and wool. Class instruction will include wool types used, needle safety precautions and proper use, how to create a form using core wool, and adding exterior details with dyed wool. The average finished size is approximately 3-4” tall. Examples and demonstration of techniques will be provided, and no previous needle felting experience is necessary.

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.
