Needlefelted Easter Eggs – Painting with Wool

March 10 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

“Egg-cited” for springtime?  This needlefelting class is a great way to celebrate spring by creating decorative felted Easter Eggs.  We’ll start with a rigid foam egg base, which we’ll cover in colorful wool from the instructor’s flock of sheep.  Laura will then show you a variety of techniques for decorating your eggs with adorable little birds or animals and different types of springtime flowers.
Bring your creative imagination, and enjoy seasonal egg decorating in a whole new medium. Ahead of class, Laura will mail you a kit, which includes all the supplies you need for the class, including foam work surface, felting needles, and plenty of colorful wool. The kit includes enough materials to make two decorative eggs.

Join us for this welcoming class!

Required Tools

Students will receive a package of materials ahead of time with all supplies needed. Kits can either be picked up March 6-8 at Gammelgården or, for an extra $10 fee, be shipped to you.
