Learn to needle felt from the comfort of home! Students get a tote bag, materials and tools for two seasonal projects, and access to live online classes. (Lessons will also be recorded so that students can make up a missed class at their leisure.) Allison, the MCMA Director of Education, will lead you and her colleagues through a fun and lively interactive experience.
* Note: Felting needles have VERY sharp barbs. You’re likely to poke yourself, and it can really hurt. Please stay alert and cautious during class. (And maybe keep a few small bandages nearby.) Artists under age 16 are welcome with adult supervision.
Supplies must be picked up from MCMA during the week before class. Each group is limited to 6 online students.
