Join us for Introduction to Needle Felting with Jenny Marion

Felt is defined as "a textile material that is produced by matting, condensing and pressing fibers together."  In needle felting, felt is formed by repeatedly stabbing a needle into a piece of wool in order to stiffen and mold it into the desired shape.  For the first session of this 2-part introductory needle-felting class, Jenny will teach students the basic techniques used to make an owl. In the second session students will learn how to felt over a simple wire armature to make a seahorse. 

Since we will be working with sharp needles, participants must have adequate hand-eye coordination.  Students must have completed the September 17 class in order to attend the September 24 class.

There will be an additional $12 supply fee payable to the instructor on the first day of class which includes a felting mat and 3 needles that students can keep for future use.

What to bring:

  • Supply fee: $12 payable to instructor
  • Sewing pins
  • Small craft pliers (if available)
  • Band-aids (just in case)

Instructor Bio

Jenny Marion started needle felting in 2015 as a student of the late Wendy Kamai.  She makes needle felted creatures in her spare time and sells them in her Etsy shop.  Her favorite animals to make are Native Hawaiian birds and fantasy creatures from pop culture.  Some of her creations have been life-like enough to serve as surrogate parent birds for orphaned Hawaiian sea birds at rescue facilities.
