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.

Teacher Feedback

I have done clay projects with you for as long as I can remember. Once again, everything was AMAZING! We have a new grade partner this year who had never been, and she absolutely loved it! The instructors are always excellent, They explain and guide the students in manageable chunks to make it easy for the kids to follow along. I love that you allow extra parents to come and assist. I especially like that the projects are always connected to the curriculum! Thanks again.

The Peru and Indigenous Peoples of Canada program perfectly connected Gr 3 Social Studies content with some Gr 4 Social Studies content. We had lots to talk about after.

The instructor was amazing. She engaged the students in the Métis culture. The activity was hands on and informative.
