Needlefelting Workshop

During February, Gammelgården held two needlefelting workshops. People of all ages – from elementary-school age to seniors – participated in the classes.

Jenny Mayer (on the left in the photo below) led the class on how to use the barbed needle to felt wool.

Participants chose from a variety of cookie cutters to create their shapes.

By placing wool inside the cookie cutter, it was easier to felt the desired shape.

Each person made a different project including a pin and a wool coaster (as pictured below).

Gammelgården will be offering another needlefelting workshop in March. Based on the positive response, the museum may be offering needlefelting workshops regularly throughout the year.
