Sold Out! Love Is In The Air

with Amanda Tanner

February 26, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Price: $78.25

This workshop is now sold out. If you missed out, we recommend checking out For the Love of Bunnies on March 12 and/or Easter Rabbit on April 2!

Spend the day with local artist Amanda Tanner learning the process of (or expanding your skills in) needle felting. Using specialty needles and raw wool you will sculpt a small 3-dimensional bird.  If you have a favourite backyard feathered friend please bring your visual inspiration. Pack your lunch and beverages as we will break halfway through. Dress for the weather as the Leighton Centre offers an amazing visual landscape to feast upon and a habitat for birding.

All supplies and materials will be provided and are included in your registration fee. I will bring felted bird samples and a few bird books for inspiration but if you have a specific bird in mind please bring specific imagery. The focus will be on local birds, not exotic. This class is good for beginner and intermediate felters and is suitable for ages 10 and up if you have the stamina for long periods of focused time seated in a chair. The needles are sharp and there is a risk of poking oneself. Band-aids and disinfectants will be onsite.

Registration Cost:   $ 78.25
