Adult Needle Felting Workshop


Adult Needle Felting Workshop

Felt is a type of non-woven fabric that has been fabricated since ancient times in countries around the world and is used to make rugs, hats, clothing, wall art, blankets, insulation for boots, and more. Needle felting uses animal fiber such as sheep wool and special tools to enable fibers to mat together to form a cloth. Crafters today have taken the ancient art of felt making for both artistic and functional purposes.

On Saturday, June 10, from 1 pm to 2:30 pm, the Wilton Historical Society will hold its very own Needle Felting Workshop for Adults.  Participants will learn needle felting technique to create flat and sculptural pieces that can be used to embellish hats, scarves and articles of clothing. Program Educator Ellen Goldman will also talk about how this technique can be used to create jewelry, decorative objects and whimsical figures. Each participant will complete one or more pieces to take home.

Suggested for ages 18 and over.  Members:  $15; Non-members $20.
