Tuesday, June 29, 2021 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm

06/29/2021 2:00pm 06/29/2021 3:00pm Totally Tweens: Introduction to Needle Felting Needle felting is the process of transforming wool into 3D objects using a barbed needle. Basically, you can make adorable fuzzy little animals (or Minecraft creepers or mushrooms or any other object you can dream up) by stabbing wool over and over...and over...and over with a needle. Cool! Join us to learn the basics of needle felting. Needle felting is fairly simple and easy to learn, but come ready with your patience and perseverance, because it does require a long period of small, repetitive movements to achieve great results. Also come with your bravery, because the needle is very sharp and very near your fingers while you're felting. Your kit for this program will contain a few different colors of raw wool, a couple of barbed needles (careful - very sharp!) and a foam block. The supply kit can be picked up anytime the library is open during the week leading up to this event. This program is for children in grades 3-6.
