An Overview of the Various Workshops:

Needlefelting is no rocket science. I know full well that you can do anything, ANYTHING in needlefelting with one mid-range feltingneedle and a squashy carwash sponge for working surface. If you can hold the needle in your fingers and make a pecking motion from the wrist, you are an Adept already! And we'll discuss Finessing, the other aspect of this technique,
at the very beginning of our first workshop together...

Given the above parameters, there is perforce no such thing as Advanced Needlefelting (nor Beginning...). It's all the same level! What cuts in here is Spatial Relations. Since so much needlefelting is sculpture, we will be engaging your perception of items in the physical universe around you. Like, if you're attaching an arm to some being under construction, you may have to dip off into the Girls' Room, pull up your shirt and watch how your arm moves around...

The workshops below are arranged by subject or technique.

Materials lists, fees, etc. will be posted shortly --
