Needle felting is a process where wool fibers are locked together using a special felting needle. Felting needles have angled barbs along their length that grab and bind fibers together. Students will learn the basic theory of two-dimensional needle felting. This new knowledge will be used to explore the nature of wool and binding wool fibers together in new and creative ways.
