ACT! for KIDS presents a Felt Animal Workshop with instructor Theresa Beckett, Saturday, November 14, from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM at the Cook Memorial Library in Tamworth, NH. Needle felting uses felting needles to form wool rovings (wool that hasn’t been spun into yarn) into designs and three-dimensional shapes.

Theresa Beckett has been a visual artist for many years. She learned needle felting at a Waldorf School workshop, and fell in love with it. She loves to see the animals’ personalities emerge as she works with the wool. Come see what personality your animal has!

Because of the sharpness of the needles, this workshop is for ages 9 & up only. A materials cost of $6 per student covers the cost of one needle felting kit. Additional wool to take home may be purchased separately There is no workshop fee, but donations are welcome. Space is limited: please preregister by emailing act@artstamworth.org or calling 603-323-8104.

ACT! for KIDS is made possible by the Rey Foundation. Find out more about their work at www.reyfoundation.org.
