Needle-Felting




 
Report on Carolyn Ells' Needle-Felting Workshop
by Candace Fradette

On Saturday, November 19th, our fellow rug-hooker, Carolyn Ells, was kind enough to offer a workshop on Needle Felting. After seeing some of Carolyn's creations last year using this technique, we were more than pleased to accept her offer to give us a lesson.

Having distributed to us individual packages of sample wool, foam pieces and a very sharp needle, Carolyn gave us clear instructions enabling each of us to create some lovely Christmas decorations, broaches and 3-D animals.

Her demonstration on Power Point allowed us to see how creative we can all be using this new and different craft. Definitely an enjoyable day - a big Thank You, Carolyn!

Needle Felting Course
by L.H.
On November 19, 2011 our very own multi-talented guild member, Caroline Ells, offered a workshop on needle felting. Displaying a variety of her own creations and sharing her books as well as computer images, Caroline introduced the participants to different styles of both needle and wet felting. It took only a few minutes of expert instruction to get everyone underway, producing creative and delightful Christmas decorations and 3-D projects. Everyone left no only with finished items but with both the confidence and inspiration to try many more.

Bravo Caroline!
