Gnomes! These elusive creatures become active as days in the year grow short and dark.
Using needle felting techniques, you'll create a fuzzy gnome friend that fits in the palm of your hand. You'll learn all about needle felting: what types of fibers work best, selecting appropriate felting needles, and how to sculpt complex shapes. And of course the important stuff: how to achieve the rosiest cheeks and the bushiest eyebrows!
At the end of this class you'll be equipped with the skills to go NUTS with all sorts of fun future needle felting projects.
All the materials and tools for your in-class gnome are provided, and your felting needle is yours to take home at the end of class! You will have the option to buy fiber at the studio if you want to populate your world with gnome friends...
