THIS CLASS IS NOW AT CAPACITY, SO PLEASE DO NOT SUMBIT THE REGISTRATION FORM.  WE ARE PLANNING TO PROVIDE ANOTHER NEEDLE FELTING CLASS DEC. 9 – REGISTER HERE: https://indianlake.sals.edu/event/needle-felted-snowperson-ornament/?instance_id=991

The Big Crafty continues with another meal related project, this time designed to protect your table tops from hot dishes!  We’re going to get our “stabby” on and learn all about needle felting in the 2 dimensional…Felting with wool is a fascinating process.  There are many ways to accomplish it and needle felting is one of the most fun.

First we will discuss safety and the proper use of the felting needle.  Then we will learn about the process of how felting works.  We’ll then walk you through the process of preparing the trivet surface to ensure an even tough wool layer to protect table surface.  Lastly we will apply a design using colored wool felt to give our creations a bit of zing.

This project is geared toward adults, teens, and older elementary ages, as it entails use of a very sharp needle. While we will be making some kind of design on our trivets, this craft requires no special drawing or design skills, just a sense of adventure.

First you’ll need to register by filling out the registration form found below. By registering you will receive two things you’ll need in order to participate:

  • The exclusive link to the program which you will join on Wed. Nov. 18 at 6:30
  • The materials kits with the unique supplies you’ll need to make your trivet  (we will ask you to return your needles and foam blocks so we can re-use them in other needle felting projects we have planned)

While the kits will have the unique supplies, we hope you will have on hand a few basics, these are:

  • scissors
  • band-aids, just in case

Everything else we will provide! We have enough supplies for up to 15 participants, so sign up soon!

New to online programs and not sure how to do a Zoom meeting? Not to worry! The registration form gives you the chance to ask for our help figuring out Zoom prior to the program!

Zoom links will go out Tuesdays, with a reminder sent Wednesday afternoons.
