Instructor:Neysa Russo
Needle Felting: Character Mug Rug Coasters and More

Participants in this class will be able to accomplish a number of smaller projects.
The first is an adorable sheep mug rug coaster. You will learn how to sculpt using felting needles, No animals are harmed to create these adorable mug rugs! We will needle tiny locks of wool to cover the head and neck, lending a lot of authenticity to this character. A simple poking motion will shape the contours and special features, sculpting them into a three-dimensional shape. The second part of each project will walk you through the creation of the body, which will lie flat and be wide enough to accommodate a mug.

Another small project are these beautiful angels which are so enjoyable to make!
Needle felting is a technique that uses barbed needles to decorate a felt surface with design. We will combine simple design shapes and lots of color choices, to create beautifully unique dresses for each angel. Once the dress is complete, we will assemble and add a hairstyle using locks of curly wool or braids. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned felter, this class offers lots of fun, guidance, tips and inspiration.
You may expect to get two (or three) of them completed during class.

If you prefer, and time permitting, there will be even MORE opportunity for a variety of animal mug rugs or other small projects to choose from. An endless bounty of inspiration as you immerse yourself in the craft of needle felting.

Both the beginner and experienced needle felter will have fun making these simple projects!

Prerequisites:  Absolute beginner to advanced - All levels welcome.
