Needle Felting for older kids

Grades 4 and Up

In this workshop, students will get an introduction to wet felting and needle felting, two different processes of creating two- and three-dimensional works of art with sheep’s wool. First, students will experiment with wet felting as they make felt geodes and bendy snakes. In the time remaining, they can make wet felted soap and pebbles and experiment with flat felted scenes and designs. In the second workshop, students will create at least one flat piece of felt art with a simple design and at least one three-dimensional piece with a felt sphere as its base. Students will gain a basic understanding of wet and needle felting techniques and will go home with the knowledge and confidence to experiment more on their own. No needle felting or fiber art experience is necessary to dive in and start creating!

A World of Color

Ages 3-6

Preschoolers will be given many opportunities to experiment with color using a range of different materials. The projects are all very hands on and have a great sense of play, some magic, and a little bit of mess, to engage this age group. The process-orientedactivities, such as marble paper, soap foam paintings and food-coloring sun-catchers use easy to find materials that allow favorite projects to be replicated at home. Many of the projects also produce beautiful papers that can be displayed alone or used to create lovely collages.

Parent and Child Paint Afternoon

All ages

Parents and kids enjoy each other’s company as they relax and paint scenes and pictures that can be displayed individually or in a series. This family bonding time also serves as an opportunity for both kids and parents to hone their creative problem solving skills that are taught so well through art. Each week, the instructor will walk the group through fun and attractive acrylic paintings that are accessible for all levels of artistic ability. Pairs/groups will go home each week with handmade masterpieces and a new sense of togetherness.
