Needle felting is fun! Learn to transform hand-dyed wool from the instructor’s flock of sheep into your very own adorable Nisse. We will mail you the materials ahead of time, then Laura will take you step-by-step through the process via Zoom. No previous experience is necessary. The materials kit comes with enough wool to make one Nisse, with possibly enough extras for a smaller one later for extra creative fun.  All you need to complete the project is a work surface like a sturdy table, good light, and a pair of scissors.  Everything else is included!  Experience the magic of needle felting or learn some new tips to add to your growing skillset. Join us for this welcoming online class!

Supplies: A complete kit of supplies (a $35 value) is included in the cost of enrollment. You'll also need a work surface like a sturdy table, good light, a pair of scissors, and a computer, laptop, or tablet with a camera and mic as well as a fast, reliable internet connection.

If you are registering for this class in a location outside the contiguous United States, additional shipping charges may apply. Please contact when you register for more information. 

Special Instructions: When registering for the class, please make sure to use the address you'd like the kit shipped to, and the email address you'd like the Zoom meeting invitations sent to. You will receive links to the Zoom sessions by email sometime during the week prior to the class.
