A Felted Pet Portrait
In this course, you’ll learn the art of needle-felting while immortalizing your favorite furry friend onto clothing or a framed piece of art. Needle-felting involves pushing the cotton candy like fibers of wool roving into fabric with a serrated needle. It’s a simple craft that is so easy to learn, no past experience is necessary. You can also learn how to sell products on Amazon to make some extra money.
No pet? No problem! Any animal of your choosing can be the focus of your felted masterpiece. Simply bring a printed image of your pet or chosen animal (a picture from your phone will not work, please bring a hard copy) along with you. If you’d like to needle-felt onto a piece of clothing, you can bring that as well (sweaters work best). Or create your pet portrait on a ready-to-hang embroidery hoop. Join us!
Join The Skillery and a team of talented friends for a full day of creative learning and doing at The Skillery Craft Camp. With classes ranging from book arts to printing, felting and bringing out the Beyonce in you, the stocked Craft Camp schedule was designed to let attendees take a day to focus on creative growth and collaborative fun — a summer break for grown folks.
Take one or two classes, or plan a daylong immersion in creativity, and leave with fresh skills and finished projects you can replicate at home (or just show off).
We’ll finish the day with a fireside hang and s’mores and drinks party outside. Learn, play, and stay for the day!
