During this workshop we will work with wool to create amazing creatures with legs, arms, paws, antlers and tails! This puppet will be perfect for playing with kids or for home decoration. The instructor will show various tips and tricks that will help you to felt 3D shapes from simple forms to very complex, depending on your experience level. We will make a felted puppet based on a simple 2D pattern with additional details, such as extra legs, tails or antlers.

MATERIAL COST: $30.00 to be paid to the instructor on the day of the workshop.

Her formal art training took place at the Moscow College of Arts and Crafts with majors in carpets and tapestry making. Eventually she came to felt-making, which was close to the carpets for its soft texture and great many usages.
