December 15: Hand-felted Wool Animal Sculptures with Elena Gibson
Learn how to form a posable, four-legged animal figure using the fascinating technique of needle felting. You’ll craft 3-1/2”-tall figures out of wool using a special barbed needle. Bring a picture of an animal or pet for reference. The creatures you create can be used as ornaments, table decor, or even a curious gift for the cat!
