This class is divided into 12 segments. Every month you will be instructed to create a new part for your nativity scene. You will learn to use a felting needle and to manipulate fiber into the shape of a Sheep, Ox, Donkey, Camel, Shepherd, Angel, King I, King II, King III, Joseph, Mary, Baby Jesus.
First, you will attend a 2-hour class that will get you started and to the point where you feel comfortable to work on your own. The following Tuesday, you are encouraged to join the "open" house (for felting) to sit and work on your project. "Open felting group" is held on the second Tuesday for group I, and the fourth Tuesday for group II. You get to use the tools and materials in the workshop to finish your project.
- group II will only be opened once group I is filled
- monthly reservations will be made available a month ahead of time and students signed up for the previous month will have priority so they can continue on their Nativity scene.
Month after month you will add to your Nativity scene and create an heirloom piece that will be a joy for generations to come.
By December 2021 you will have a complete nativity scene including one of each: Sheep, Ox, Donkey, Camel, Shepherd, Angel, King I, King II, King III, Joseph, Mary, Baby Jesus.
