Adults and Teens!

Virtual Needle Felting Class with Judy Rush

Thursdays, September 10 & 17, 6:30-8:30pm

This two-session, live Zoom class with art filter Judy Rush provides a great foundation in basic needle felting techniques. Participants will create a fantasy gnome from a basic core shape of wool fiber, then be guided in adding color, dimension and a unique personality. These classes will also be recorded and available to paid participants for future reference.

Class Fee: $45, includes all materials (needles, dyed wool and foam block). Kits will be available for pickup at the museum prior to class. Shipping option available when registering.

Judy Rush is a fiber artist living in Columbus, Ohio. She began her fiber arts journey while in college and became a quilter after moving to Columbus. She spent many years as a hand quilter working close to the surface; so closely, she decided it was time to explore just fiber. A residency in the Netherlands introduced her to felting. Working primarily in wool fiber ever since, she is exploring how wet and dry (needle) felting can best articulate the conversation she is having in this life.
