For our “Intro to Needle Felting” workshop, we partnered with Morning Parade Coffee Bar at their Crawford location. Carrier Bag Collective member Jay Clarke kicked off the event with a screening of their 2022 stop motion film “Mangos with my Mom” featuring entirely needle-felted props. Following the screening, Jay shared a collection of works by their favourite textile artists for inspiration! Participants were then guided through a beginners tutorial with plently of one-on-one time with facilitators. Guests had the opportunity to experiment with the medium, while learning important foundational felting techniques. Finally, guests were welcome to follow a guided tutorial for a bumble bee figure!
