Needle Felting Workshop
The Studios of Cocoa Beach is hosting a Needle Felting Workshop, taught by Glaucia Romano, on Saturday, July 29 from 5:30 to 8:00 pm. Learn and practice multiple ways of felting.
We will be working with soap felting as well as needle-felting. Students may work on any project they choose in both two-dimensional and three-dimensional felting. You will be able to take home an example of each. Feel free to bring your ideas and inspirational pictures!
Felting is an ancient technique to create fabric that has been around since at least 6500 BCE! Felt is 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. What can you make by felting? The possibilities are endless! Maybe a two-dimensional artwork ready to be framed, or a three-dimensional plushy, keychain, or even beads!
