About the event

During the course of these 4 days you will learn the basic techniques needed for the construction of a gnome. Through the application of many thin layers of wool, using a fine felting needle, a face (NEW... you will have the choice of making a close mouth or a smiling grin) will emerge and with much love and attention to detail, it will come alive right in front of your eyes. Wire within the fingers, arms, and legs will give the body the ability to be positioned and ensure that the gnome can stand on its own. We will construct simple shoes using polymer clay. Clothing will be wet felted with natural colored merino wool, which then will be hand dyed in the colors of your own choosing. Finally, the gnome will be dressed and the hair will be attached with a felting needle and styled. all materials, including wool, hand glass eyes and felting needles are included in the cost of the course. Some felting experience is required for this workshop. Class Fee: $495 (includes beverages and a yummy lunch supplied by Wool-ology)  Tools and others material list: Size 38 felting needles, felting work surface (available for purchase at Wool-ology) any fabric you would like to use in creating your gnome
