Needle Felting!


Saturday February 8
10 AM
Instructor – Becky Wright

Rebecca Wright is an artist and member of Artist n Residence Co-operative Gallery on Main St. in Enosburg Falls and art teacher and librarian at Bakersfield Elementary School.


Needle felting is a fun and easy fiber-art.

Needle felting is the process of interlocking wool fibers by stabbing it with a barbed needle.  The barbs catch the scales on the fiber and cause them to tangle and bind together. Unlike traditional felting, it is done with dry wool. You will use wool roving, a felting needle and punch board to create a shaped felted ornament or gift tag. 

This workshop is free and aimed at adults, but older children or children with helpers are welcome too!
