Event Description

This class will cover tricks and tips for creating structurally sound metal work and hard well-made felt. First, learn to shape wool roving into beads using needle felting techniques, then to lay down color, lines and other surface treatments, followed by wet felting to full or firm the bead. Creating blends and gradations of color will also be covered. Next, learn the metal skills to punch, dap, drill and wire wrap in order to add internal support and finished end caps to your bead.
