Needle-Felted Sheep with Tammy Jordan

Needle-Felted Sheep with Tammy Jordan

Do you love sheep and wish you could have some of your very own? Well, I can't promise a real sheep, but these Needle-Felted Sheep are the next best thing! In this three-hour fun and interactive workshop, you will create your very own festive and decorative needle-felted sheep ornaments. Choose from white, black, or brown local Montana wool from my own flock of sheep as well as locally sourced yarn to make your ornament. You will have time to complete one ornament in class and have the materials to complete an additional ornament at home, or in class if time permits.

 

Level:  Beginner - No prior needle-felting experience is required.

Ages:  8+ Children under the age of 13 must be accompanied by an adult who is taking the class.

Materials Fee:  $15 - Includes everything you will need to make two sheep ornaments, which includes the fiber, felting needles, horseshoe nail legs, and felting foam.

Options:  Additional material and full kits may be purchased at a discount at the end of class so you can continue to create additional members of your flock at home.

Please Bring:  Yourself, a smile, and your creativity to design your very own masterpiece.  You will be provided a felting tool and needles to use during the class or you may choose to bring your own.

She has been spinning, knitting, and felting for more than ten years and is a member of the Montana Association of Weavers and Spinners, current member and past Secretary and Co-Chair of the Prairie Handspinners Guild in Billings, MT, a member and Secretary of the Lincoln Council for the Arts, and recently began the Lincoln Fiber Circle in her new home of Lincoln, MT.
