Needle felting is a technique that uses barbed needles and carded wool to decorate a felt surface with design.
Simple design shapes and lots of colors combine to create a tapestry. A kit is a great way to begin your needle felting journey. Each tapestry will exhibit the unique and personal characteristics of the artist within you. Along the way, you will build your needling skills, gain design experience and experiment with color. Simple design shapes combine to create beautifully unique and personal folk art. Many tips are offered to keep your felting moving forward. You will also gain insight into the basic principles of wet felting in a way that is straightforward and accessible using readily available equipment. I hope you enjoy a browse through the shop. Reach out through the Contact Me page. I am happy to help answer any felting questions, or guide you, if I am able.
