Needle Felting: Black Bear
March 10 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm$60 – $75
Experience the therapeutic magic of needle felting! In this zoom class, artist Laura Berlage will take you on a step-by-step process to transform hand-dyed wool into your very own adorable mini black bear. A great class for beginners, or add new tips to your needle felting skills. Feel the rewarding joy of transforming hand-dyed wool (from Laura’ own flock of sheep!) into 3D.
About the Instructor – Laura Berlage is a contemporary Renaissance woman who resides and works on her family’s century-old homestead farm located outside Hayward, WI. From fiber arts to creative writing, music to storytelling, she enjoys the magic of transforming an idea into form and overlapping narrative and visual. Laura received her MFA in Interdisciplinary Arts from Goddard College in 2011. She continues her passion for mentoring others to encourage creativity, imagination and expression through an engaged hands-on teaching approach.

Material kits for this project will be available a week ahead of time. The kit includes enough wool to make two black bears, so you can continue the felting fun after class.
