SOLD OUT | Needle Felted Gnomes with Firefly Studios

Join Firefly Studios to create your very own gnome(s) using core wool and various colors of dyed wool, and barbed needles. You will be able to complete 1-2 small gnomes during this class; though sizes vary, the average size of each gnome is approx. 3” tall. Class instruction goes over the needle felting process, proper needle use and safety, how to create a sculptural core and attach felt pieces, as well as adding exterior wool and details. If you’ve never tried needle felting, this is a wonderful class to begin with, and is also fun for those with previous experience! Examples and demonstrations of techniques will be provided, and plenty of wool options will be available to choose from. Completed project sizes may vary.

This program is for adults and kids, ages 8 and up. Registered kids must be accompanied by a registered adult.

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.
