In this Felting class we will be using all natural wool felt to create treasured felted dolls for the nature table or for your child to play with. The techniques used will be needle felting, hand sewing, as well as some embroidery and decorative beadwork. Color palettes and materials will be inspired by the seasons and natural materials found outdoors.
