BOO! I’m getting excited for Halloween, are you?? It’s still way too hot to be October here in NYC, but the ubiquitous pumpkins and jumbo bags of candy make it impossible to ignore – Halloween is almost here! In the spirit of the season, I’m dedicating this month’s column to Halloween felt. It’s an October Spooky Special full of black cats, vampire bats, witches, jack-o-lanterns, ghosts and more! 🎃 👻
If you would like to submit your portfolio (or an artist you admire) for consideration for this column, please complete this form. It’s quick and easy!
What Technique Is This?
Needle Felting is the process of using a notched or “barbed” needle to compress layers of wool into denser felt that can be manipulated to create 3D sculptures. It is different to wet felting, which uses water to combine wool fibres, and these days there are a range of felting tools available that can enable you to make your own soft sculptures with ease!
