Needle Felting

Partnership with Duke Arts Create & DuWell

Taught by Amber Mooers

About the Workshop

Get some aggression out by stabbing things until they’re cute! In this workshop we will go over the basics of needle felting, introducing the tools, techniques, and project opportunities for this craft. Make a tiny critter, cat toy, or portrait using colored wool and specialized needles.

About the Instructor

Amber graduated from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design with a degree in 3D fine Arts. She specialized in ceramics, but her second love is fiber arts. She currently works out of her home studio, as well as with some local artists sharing resources. Amber primarily works in handbuilding for both her ceramic sculpture and functional ware, and she uses underglazes to color her pieces. For her fiber art, Amber works mostly in wool, felting and dyeing the material into sculptural, often mixed-media forms.
