MR. BLUEBIRD in progress. The tools and techniques in needle felting are simple enough for a child to learn. Play with color and find your muse but don't look away or you'll feel the needle! The tools needed for the job are easy to find in your local yarn store, yarn, roving. A special needle does the work without having to be threaded and it is easy to create your own design and incorporate beads and found objects into your piece. A wonderful medium for children, with a little guidance, that is!.
IN ADDITION to regularly offered knitting and needlework, Lisa is offering classes in mixed media, color, design, hats and using felt from the bolt or sheets to create florals and accents, incorporating beads and other frills and combining techniques for unique effects. Flat felt, roving, spun yarn, fiber, feathers, beads, wire, ribbon and florals are the start of a wonderful thing. Find out how to pull out all the stops and bring the colors and textures together for unforgettable design...
CLASSES offered this year include PICTORIAL FELTING, FIGURES & FANTASIES, MIXED MEDIA, and COTTAGES. Using needle felting to create forms in 3-D and also 2-D scenes can be so easy and very gratifying.
EMBELLISHMENTS are also a favorite topic for teaching. If you wish to learn to create any of the embellishments garnishing Lisa's hats, do not hesitate to contact Lisa by clicking on the CONTACT button in the left margin.
