Create a colourful scene using needle felting techniques!

In this workshop each student will be given the supplies needed to create an 8 x 10 inch picture of their own design or using examples of work Joanne has created.

The supplies provided include a piece of felt to work on, many choices of colour of wool fleece & a felting needle. Participants should bring their own fabric scissors & any design ideas they have.

This medium is very versatile & has been used on garments, pictures & sculptures.

All materials will be provided. Cost of materials are $15 & are included in the workshop fee.
