About this Event
Instructor - Bleu Vermeer
Bleu has been an avid needle felting instructor since 2011 and delights in the tactile nature of the craft. They love that in needle felting, no two creations are alike and, unlike most fiber arts, there is no set pattern or steps to follow. In their classes, they encourage students to hone their tactile senses and structural visualization skills while teaching the science of non-woven fibers. As a craftsperson, Bleu relishes giving their projects a soft and squishable feel. They especially enjoy making animals realistic or stylized, real or imagined.Class Description
