In this class I will be teaching the basics of needle felting which involves poking and prodding different colours of wool with and extremely sharp barbed needle until your reach the perfect shape. This class is designed for beginners and anyone who wants to pick up some more hints and tips for their needle felting endeavours. I will be teaching the class specifically on how to make penguins and I will be providing the materials for the entire project. When they are finished, they will go away with a penguin about 10-12 cms tall and the knowledge and supplies to carry on when they get home.

Instructor Bio: Bella McBride lives in the same small community that she was raised in at the head of the Belleisle Bay in New Brunswick, Canada. Being diagnosed with fibromyalgia at a young age forced her to reevaluate her botany career and through a series of serendipitous events she fell in love with the art of needle felting. She is entirely self taught and is greatly inspired by the forests that surround her.

She is now a full time fibre artist who not only sells her work all over the world but also teaches classes and co-hosts a popular felting retreat. She has been featured on the covers of both Created Here and SaltScapes magazines and had her work featured in a gallery for the first time at the Andrew and Laura McCain Art Gallery in Florencevill-Bristol, NB,in the fall of 2018.
