Thursday, May 3, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Room 5 at Turf Valley Resort

Unleash your creativity and the versatility of needle-felting to create an original wool sculpture.

Come learn how wool, like your imagination, has no limits! Proficiency Level: Intermediate and advanced. Bring to Class: Optional: photos or drawings (or pencil and paper) for inspiration; also optional (if you already own them) needles and foam pad.
Class Fee: $100. Materials Fee: $10-$25 for wool only, depending on how much is used; plus an additional $15 if you want to purchase needles, foam pad, and felting kit to keep.
