Learn how to make a needle felted gnome! These engaging characters are about 6″ – 8″ tall, mostly depending on the curliness of their hats.

Personalize with colors and accessories to make it uniquely your own, based on a season, a theme, or just a favorite color. No previous needle felting experience is required, but students must be old enough to safely handle extremely sharp felting needles.

Participants will learn how to use wire armatures to shape a needle felted creation, along with techniques for needle felting wool roving and curly locks.
