Needle Felting Workshop
The Studios of Cocoa Beach is hosting a Needle Felting Workshop, taught by Glaucia Romano, on Saturday, October 27 from 6 to 8:30 pm. Learn the basics of felting to create beautiful two and three-dimensional artwork using wool. You will be able to take home an example of each. Feel free to bring your ideas and inspirational pictures!
Felting is an ancient technique to create fabric that has been around since at least 6500 BCE! Felt is a non-woven textile made of wool or animal fur. There are different ways to create felt: one is with soap and water, and another is with a felting needle. Regardless of the process, the action of felting binds fibers together creating a permanent bond. If you have never tried needle-felting, it can be quite a calming, enjoyable, and meditative process despite its repetitive motions.
Glaucia Romano has a Masters in Art Education and is a certified Art Educator in the state of Florida. She has taught art classes for at least 15 years in the public and private sectors, mostly to kids, but also to adults.
