F105 Intro to Needle Felting





Meeting Times

  • Saturday 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM


Learn the basics of needle felting by creating an exotic psychedelic-looking mushroom. Needle felting is an enjoyable and, some say, therapeutic craft. Visual references and templates will be provided, or you can design your own mushroom. Students will learn how to construct a simple wire armature and colorful 3-D form. Materials are included, with the exception of the materials listed below. 

*Materials required for class by student:

  • A premade felting mat, or piece of high density foam such as that used for upholstry, or DIY burlap bag filled with rice, buckwheat or flaxseeds (you can find instructions online). Premade felting mats, including felt, foam, or filled, can be purchased on Amazon, Etsy, or through needle felting suppliers on the internet. 
  • Needle nose pliers.
  • Three leather finger protecors or used kidskin gloves with the fingers cut off (I recommend these - order a size smaller than you own glove size on eBay). 
  • Sketchbook or notebook and pencil.

Additional Notes


Proof of full Covid-19 vaccination and at least one booster as eligible will be REQUIRED for class registration for all sessions going forward. 


The Wesleyan Potters policy has changed. Mask wearing will be optional.

We have to be flexible and will advise if mask requirements go from optional to required during a class session. If Middlesex County COVID positivity rates increase into the Red Category, the loosened rules on masking may be modified for the health and safety of our community. 

Note that everyone has the option to continue to wear his or her mask during the semester. If you feel the need to continue to wear a mask for your own protections, or to protect someone close to you, you should do so. 

An email providing more information regarding our cleaning procedures will be provided before the start of class.

VACCINATION QUESTION: Are you able to provide proof of full COVID19 vaccination with booster? 

Please bring proof of vaccination to the office soon after registration and before your class begins. It can also be sent electronically to Wespots2021@att.net. In the subject heading, write your First name, Last name and your class.
