About the event

Learn to make a charmingly realistic chipmunk with needle felt artist Claudia Marie Lenart, who has created needle felt wildlife for Tiffany & Co., Bath & Body Works, NBC’s Making It and Netflix.  The 5-6 inch chipmunk will be crafted on a copper wire frame and will be posable and able to hold a light object.  In this two-day workshop, you will learn how to find inspiration and how to research animal shapes and features. You will learn how to build a wire frame. We will build the chipmunk layer by layer. We will spend significant time on facial features, creating a face with character. You will learn to blend the alpaca fibers to create a furry and soft creature. You will learn to use a reverse needle to enhance the furriness. You will also learn to attach whiskers. This workshop is geared towards the intermediate needle felter. The wool and alpaca, copper wire and horsehair for whiskers are available for purchase from Woolology.  You will need to bring a felting surface, a multi-needle felting tool, 4 40 spiral (you may also bring 38 star if you prefer), 1 42 triangle, 1 38 reverse and 1 40 reverse, (needles and multi-needle tool available for purchase from Wool-ology) craft glue, needle nose pliers, small sharp craft scissors. Saturday and Sunday, May 21 and 22, 10-4 Class fee: $255
