ZIPPLY ART™ Zipper Needle Felted Art Sunday 9 AM
ZIPPLY ART™ Zipper Needle Felted Art
Sunday 9:00 AM, 6 Hours (One-hour break for Lunch)
Class Fee: $85
Class Capacity: 10
We will be making a broach/shawl pin using zippers, roving and embellishments. The zipper is hand sewn onto wool felt making an outline of a design. The inside is then filled in with wool roving using the technique of needle felting. Then buttons, beads, metal and other embellishments are added.
Students will learn also how to prepare a zipper and apply a pattern. Instruction of needle felting will also be included in this class as well as embellishment tips and finishing options.
This class is open to all skill levels…if you can thread a needle you can do this art form, however very sharp needles are used so it is preferable if students are at least 12 years of age. Needle felting experience is a plus but not a prerequisite for this class.
All materials for this class are provided by the instructor through a kit. Kits contain: How-To Book, pattern, backing fabric, prepared zipper, needle and thread, wool roving, felting needles and felting foam, a variety of embellishments and a pin back.
Additional patterns, roving and embellishments will also be available for purchase.
