Advanced Detailing & Armatures for Needle Felting Realistic Animals: Award winning artist Megan Nedds joins us from Ohio to share her techniques needle felting very realistic animals.
Students will learn how to create an armature that lends itself to realistic poses, how to build up the base layers,
and how to blend and needle felt the fibers to emulate the animal's coat and fur.
This workshop is specifically designed to teach how to needle felt animals with "paws" vs. hooves.
Great examples of the types of animals you might needle felt are: Wolf, Dog, Cat, Cheetah, Rabbit, etc.
Students will work with Living Felt brand fibers including our CW-1 Core Wool and MC-1 Felting Batts,
as can be seen in many of Megan's needle felted animals.
Megan has made hundreds of realistic needle felted animals and has a constant waiting list for commissioned works.
Megan says, "I love working with Living Felt's MC-1 fast felting
batts because they are the perfect consistency for felting.
They are so soft
and the colors are perfect. When I use them, I know my sculptures will turn out
