In this easy class, students will learn to sculpt a little piggy using barbed felting needles and wool. Felting is the process of agitating wool fibers with either water or needles (or both!) to cause the wool fibers to cling to each other and stiffen up. Because wool wants to grab on to its woolen neighbors, it is possible to sculpt almost anything with it! Come learn this technique and make a critter from wool. No experience necessary – all supplies are included.
