Needle Felted Succulent with Amanda Stumpf

Date: Saturday, October 7, 2023
Description: Needle felting is a process that involves sculpting shapes and figures using a type of wool called roving and special felting needles that have sharp, barbed blades. Needle felting works by agitating the fibers in the wool with the barbed needles so they bond together making a solid piece of felt. In this workshop you will learn the basics of needle felting to create your own cactus/succulent that never needs sun or water.
