Did you know that you can shave the wool off the backs of sheep, add water and soap and the wool becomes a fiber substance and turns into felt? It’s like magic! We will use this method for making felt necklaces. Let's roll up your sleeves and get ready to wet your hands! From 10 year olds to grown-up students, all are welcome to try needle felting on beads.
This course is for youth, ages 6+, and their parent or guardian.
$30 for a single registration
$60 for a parent and child registration

"My journey as an artist has been informed by my experience growing up in Japan - the nexus of a profound, traditional past in co-existence and interaction with an energetic, hyper-modern future. My choice of glass as a medium reflects my experience: it is both rooted in traditional techniques while at the same time projecting a modern materiality. I want to capture this reality in my work, balancing the old and the new, honoring tradition and innovation, exploring past and future."
