Needle Felting: Pukita Doll Workshop with Dulce Maria Corrales
Wednesday, October 10th, 5:30-7:30pm
Pukita dolls are very popular in South America. The meaning of the given name Pukita represents compassion, creativity, reliability, generosity, loyalty and a love for domestic life. The Pukita needle felted doll is a wonderful beginner’s project! Needle felting is the art of using wool with special, barbed needles. Stabbing the wool over and over again meshes the wool fibers together, creating a firm product that can be shaped into many forms. The Pukita doll will be approximately 3-6″ when completed and there will be multiple colors available to choose from for skin, clothing and accessories. This class will give you the beginner’s skills to start creating dolls on your own and simple animals like llama or sheep. $35 (members) / $38.50 (future members)
