Make a Needle Felted Gnome
The Studios of Cocoa Beach, 165 Minutemen Causeway in downtown Cocoa Beach is hosting Make a Needle Felted Gnome with Glaucia Romano on Saturday, December 2, from 6 to 8 pm. Learn the basics of felting as you create a whimsical three dimensional gnome. Perfect for the holidays!
Felting is an ancient technique to create a non-woven textile made of wool or animal fur. There are different ways to create felt: one is with soap and water, and another is with a felting needle. Regardless of the process, the action of felting binds fibers together creating a permanent bond, and making the felting process irreversible. If you have never tried needle-felting, it can be quite a calming, enjoyable, and meditative process despite its repetitive motions. In this two-hour class where we will explore and experiment with needle felting to create a holiday gnome.
Fee for the class is $60 which includes all materials. Register at www.studiosofcocoabeach.org. Visit the website for more information about this non-profit gallery, artist portfolios, events and a complete list of classes. Or follow them on Facebook and Instagram.
