Each student will be making a brooch/shawl pin using zippers, roving, and embellishments. The zipper is hand sewn onto wool felt, making an outline of a design. The inside is then filled in with wool roving using the technique of needle felting. Then buttons, beads, metal, and other embellishments are added.
Students will learn also how to prepare a zipper and apply a pattern. Needle felting instruction will be included in this class, as well as embellishment tips and finishing options.
