Needle Felting with Erin Nix

Tuesday, October 21, 6:30pm
Shoreline Center - Horizon Room

A beginner needle felting workshop where participants will learn safety, techniques, and how fun, cheap, and easy of a craft needle felting is to start. Participants will run through common beginner mistakes, tricks to get around them and make your craft flourish, and most importantly spend time jumping right in and trying the process out. Erin Nix will be working with individuals as the group progresses, and will provide handouts on summary topics, as well as lists of places to find materials to continue working in needle felt.

About the instructor: Erin Nix has been needle felting for two years, during that time she has learned the art of needle felting, discovered some of the best materials, and found resources to help learn new techniques. Nix owns and operates “Felted Familiars: Soft. Adorable. Epic.” A fine art and craft business specializing in custom needle felted animals.
