Have you ever wanted to learn how to needle felt but felt it was too difficult? I make needle felting easy. I'm Linda Facci of Facci Designs and I'll introduce you to the range of materials and tools needed to get started. I am a self-taught fiber artist in NYC. I teach beginner needle felting classes, and I sell my felted animals on Etsy.

You'll learn the very basics of needle felting, from the different types of wool, needles, pads and more necessary to make your own 3D wooly shape. Learn how to turn wool into a basic 3D shape, felt flat pieces, and embellish your creation. I will demonstrate the techniques needed to start on a simple project. You'll be creating a cute piglet's face by following my easy, step-by-step instructions.

Once you learn the basics, we can move on to other projects in my next videos.

This class is geared toward first-time-felters and beginners with no prior knowledge or experience of needle felting. Adults and children 9 years+ can needle felt.
