Needle Felting: Take a Stab at it!
After a long day in the classroom or at work, have you ever wanted to ....just stab something?
Needle felting is a little known art form that involves stabbing and poking a barbed needle into wool to create 2D or 3D projects.
You can create anything you can imagine from stuffies, to masks, to baby mobiles to clothes and more!
Worried about safety?
Don't worry there are ways to felt that don't involve needles! Wet felting uses water, soap and agitation to create all sorts of fun projects.
