Introduction
to Needle Felting

This is an UrbanArts + Workman Arts Satellite Program!

Discover the joys of needle felting with Toronto-based multidisciplinary artist and textile enthusiast Kat Singer! Dry (needle) felting involves using a barbed needle to compact (typically natural wool) fibres in order to create two or three-dimensional designs. Another way to describe felting is “soft sculpture”. All you need to get started on your felting journey is patience, stamina for small, repetitive hand movements, and a little bit of practice to master basic skills. Felting encourages focus, planning, and creative problem solving. It can also be blended with other mediums and materials. Felting is not just a means of creative expression, it can also be wellness practice. In this class, learners will be invited to connect to the materials they are using as well as each other, listen to their bodies, and approach creative challenges with curiosity and compassion.
