Felted Elf Ornament with Carolyn Wright
Sunday, December 2 – 12:30 PM to 4:30 PM – Class is Full (Please Ask About Waitlist)
The League of NH Craftsmen Meredith Fine Craft Gallery invites you to join us on Sunday, December 2nd from 12:30 PM to 4:30 PM for a class to create your own unique Felted Elf Ornaments. The familiar symbols of the holiday season are perfect for dressing up a tree and incorporating into your seasonal home décor.
Students will be guided through the entire felting process to complete their own needle felted elf made entirely of wool. Juried fiber artist, Carolyn Wright, will teach students to build the basic shape, add color, and define specific elf details to create a one of a kind piece.
The felting process makes a large tuft of wool condense down into a more dense mass of wool with the use of special felting needles. Each needle has small barbs cut in one direction along the shaft of the needle, which creates a felting or matting together of wool fibers as the barbs pull the fibers down to compress and lock them together to make beautiful fiber sculptures.
This class is fun for all skill levels, ages 10 and up, from beginners to novices and no prior felting experience is necessary.
Tuition for this class is $25.00 per student to be pre-paid to the League at sign-up and there is an additional materials fee of $12.00, which is to be paid directly to the instructor on the day of class. Space is limited. Pre-registration is required. To pre-register, visit the League of NH Craftsmen on 279 DW Highway, Meredith, NH or call (603) 279-7920.
