Needle Felted Mermaid Workshop
August 16, 2019 - August 17, 2019$125
As summer winds to an end, fiber artist Anne Magrath will show you how to create your own needle felted mermaid so you can return to the sea (or, at least your memories) anytime you’d like. In this fun-filled, two-day workshop, you’ll learn the basics of needle felting a human face and torso. You will then let your imagination run as you give your mermaid a tail, hair, and her own whimsical personality. First, Magrath will discuss what fibers are appropriate for creating a needle felted structure and finishing a piece. Next, you’ll learn how to build a 3D form using a wire frame. Then, you’ll explore different techniques for blending, shaping, and attaching wool and exotic fibers to your mermaid. Finally, you’ll practice your skills as you continue to build and refine your piece and bring your mermaid to life.
