A note about needle felting safety:
Please note that although there will be a safety demonstration at the beginning of each needle felting class, it can be a very prickly craft, especially as one is learning. Rubber finger cots will be provided as optional protection, or students may bring a set of thimbles from home. Instructor does provide adhesive bandages throughout the class.
If you have a medical condition that makes needle pokes more dangerous, please let us know before the class date and special accommodations will be arranged.
