About Felted Faces with Kristen Walsh
Learn all the needle felting techniques to turn wool roving into a human face! Really! You choose…white or flesh colored. These are the same techniques necessary to make human (or mermaid) figures, Santa ornaments and more! This is a great workshop for launching into even more complicated works.
This Fiber Arts Seminar is offered as part of the 2021 Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival and is limited to 20 students.
Class Materials Needed
Work surface (foam, rice sack, etc.); materials kit purchased from instructor. Kit contains wool felt, chosen flesh tone wool, all bits of wool necessary for facial features, wool locks, bamboo skewer, two needles. Materials kit will be an additional $20, and can be purchased directly from instructor. Ordering instructions for the materials kit will be available in Lessonface once you have enrolled. To allow enough time for the kit to arrive prior to the start of class, registration for this class will close on April 3.
Single session on Tuesday, April 27, at 9 am ET | 6 am PT | 13:00 UTC.
Enrolled students receive 30-day access to the video recordings of the class.
