Needle Felted Man in the Moon

A Great Introduction to Sculptural Needle Felting - Perfect for Beginners

Needle Felted Man in the Moon  needle felted man in the moon

Make a date with The Man (or Woman) in the Moon!   This workshop is so much fun as we make needle felted faces on a crescent moon body using only wool and barbed felting needles.  Learn to make expressive eyes and a smiling mouth with bright white teeth.  Learn the basics of wrinkles and shading too - all with wool!  No sewing, no painting and no previous needle felting experience necessary.  Your finished Moon will be about 12" long plus a felted wool hanger. 

Along with learning basic techniques for bringing wool to life using sculptural needle felting techniques, you will gain an understanding of selecting wool and supplies to bring your own ideas to life in needle felted wool. You'll discover a world of possibilities as I share my unique Felt Alive insight into this amazing art craft. And you'll take home a unique needle felted character of your very own design!

1 Day Workshop - APRIL 20, 2013  10 am - 4 pm.  Bring a lunch, snacks and beverage.

Located in the heart of the Illinois River Valley in rural southern Oregon.  There are many inns, b&bs & resorts scattered throughout the Illinois River Valley. Or bring your RV and stay with our friends at Lone Mountain RV Resort which offers rv spaces, a guest house, tent sites, tipi rentals and hot showers and laundry.

While you are here, you might as well plan on staying an extra day or two to take in some of the local sites.  A guided tour through The Oregon Caves is a fabulous adventure and the magical Forest Moon of Endor (also known as the California Redwoods) is just a short and scenic drive away with the great Pacific coast just beyond.   If you've never visited this part of the world before, I can guarantee you are in for a treat and we'll be happy to point you to our favorite places we've found to explore.
Felt Alive Needle Felting News

Sign up for Felt Alive Needle Felting News and Kay will fill you in when something exciting happens at Felt Alive. From special sales in the shop to new Felt Alive workshops and celebrity caricatures, Felt Alive newsletters are random reminders of the fun there is to be had with sculptural needle felting.

About Kay

Kay Petal picked up her first felting needle in 1997. Without any background in art, the craft of needle felting wool led Kay to discover a talent for 3d caricature art. Her celebrity caricature dolls have been seen on The Conan O'Brien Show and several magazines.

Having produced five full-length DVD workshops Kay has students all over the world, many of whom have gone on to become professional needle felt artists. She also designed and manufactures specialized, color-coded felting needles that she calls Super-Duper.

Kay is a lifelong Alaskan but most recently can be found working in her studio in the tiny town of O'Brien in southern Oregon. Visit www.feltalive.com to learn more.
