Needle Felting

Needle Felting

Needle felting is the only felting type that does not require wetting the fibers in the process of bonding the fibers together. The needle simply hooks onto fibers with specially placed barbs and forces them to tangle. There is only really one step to needle felting, which is to poke fibers with a felting needle until it tangles to the desired effect. There are several techniques, however, which you will learn in this class. The focus of our class will be on making flowers.Needle felting is the only felting type that does not require wetting the fibers in the process of bonding the fibers together.
