Kids Saturday Class: Felting Halloween Critters
The popular Art for Kids class continues in October at the Studios of Cocoa Beach. Instructor Glaucia Romano will present a four session class on “Felted Halloween Cats and Pumpkins” You have two opportunities. Thursday October 5,12,19 and 26 from 4 to 5 pm and Saturday October 7,14,21,28 from 10 to 11 am.
Kids will learn the basics of needle felting and create three dimensional pumpkins and Halloween cats! Felting is an ancient technique to create fabric from wool or other animal hair. There are different ways to create felt: one is with a felting needle. The action of felting binds fibers together creating a permanent bond, and making the felting process irreversible.
This class is best for kids 9 and up. All caution will be taken to prevent poking accidents. We will have finger protectors for use and children will be taught the best way to felt to avoid little accidents. If they do happen, they are never serious.
