VIRTUAL: Needle Felted Turkey Vulture with Erin Carlson
October 21 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
3-Hour VIRTUAL Workshop
Date: Saturday, October 21, 2023
Description: Learn to needle felt (or sharpen your skills) while creating your own Turkey Vulture. Fiber artist and backyard bird enthusiast Erin Carlson will guide you through the needle felting process as you look closely to observe the shape and markings of the species.
We will also be joined by local birder, eleven-year-old Ezra White, who will share his knowledge about the Turkey Vulture throughout the workshop.
Tuition: $55 Tuition + materials fee
Materials: Erin has put together a specific materials kit for the Turkey Vulture for $20. Kits may be picked up at Contemporary Craft (5645 Butler St., Pittsburg, PA 15201) or you can have your kit shipped to you for $15.
In addition, if you are new to needle felting, you will need a Starter Kit with a foam block and 3 felting needles for $10. If you have experience needle felting and already have a foam block and felting needles, you do not need to purchase the Starter Kit.
