Needle Felting: Florentine Bird Tapestry

 Needle felting is a simple technique that uses barbed needles and carded wool to decorate a felt surface with design.

Simple design shapes and lots of colors combine to create a Florentine Bird Tapestry. We will all begin with a simple tree, bending its way to the top of the canvas. You will learn how to needle felt fanciful and elaborate flowers, simplistic singing birds, ferns, vines and leaves. Though we will all be working on the same theme, each tapestry will exhibit the unique and personal characteristics of the artist within you.  


There will be many prompts to guide you with lots of inspiration for various flower clusters and birds plus an abundance of color choices. Working on the black background eliminates the need to outline and makes the design shapes and colors pop out.  Along the way, you will build your needling skills, gain design experience and experiment with color. Simple design shapes combine to create beautifully unique and personal folk art. While we needle, we can talk about inspiration, composition, color choices, needle varieties, fiber and many techniques and tricks are offered to keep your felting moving forward.


Beginners and experienced needle felters are welcome!

Prerequisites:  No skills required. Beginners are welcome and I may even have some techniques that would be useful to experienced needle felters!
