Workshop: Needle Felted Chickadee

Create a sweet felted chickadee inspired by Minnesota’s northwoods in this afternoon-long class. Led by instructor Laura Berlage, students will follow step-by-step instructions to transform hand-dyed wool from the instructor’s own sheep into a felted chickadee that will fit in the palm of your hand. Needle felting is fun, easy and therapeutic, and as your wooly friend comes to life, you’ll enjoy conversation with other students and learning more about wool and the sheep who produced your kit materials! Your kit even contains enough wool to make a second chickadee, perfect for continuing with this craft beyond class.

This is a live virtual class taught over Zoom. Students need a strong internet connection and a device with video capabilities.

Kits ($25 value) are included in the class fee. Each kit has the tools and materials for one student, including a needle felting base, felting needles and wool roving. Kits will be available for pick up at the American Swedish Institute from January 12 or can be shipped for an additional $10 fee.

Registration for this kit-based class closes January 9.
