Enjoy the look of nature’s beautiful desert plants without the prickles. In this beginner-friendly felting workshop, you will learn how to make a solid 3D sculpture entirely from wool fibers. A special barbed needle will be used and you will learn to add dimension to the basic shape and colored fibers to make your cacti bloom. After felting, you will plant your cacti in a small terra cotta pot and add decorative rocks.
The $40 registration fee includes all materials.
