Sculpting and manipulating 3D shapes, detailing, creating and attaching various 3D and flat elements are the techniques you will learn and use for felting many other birds. No experience necessary. Adults and children ages 8 and up are welcome.

Cost is $75 and includes materials and use of a shop foam pad and felting needle. You’re welcome to bring a double-needle if you have one or purchase the tool at Portfiber. It would help speed up your progress.
