DESCRIPTION:  Get ready to twirl!  In this 4 hour workshop, Jackie and Mary teach the art of fringing and twirling wool. After mastering these techniques you are well on your way to assembling the unique Wooly Pine Tree. 

The first step is selecting a piece of wool from their wonderful collection of colors of which any choice makes a beautiful tree. This Wooly Pine is made with 35 fringed and twirled branches. After fringing the first strip of wool, you practice twirling a few branches before snipping more strips.

In addition to wool, the kit includes precut wires, a 15 inch dowel, floral tape, wood base (stained or crackled), and written instructions. The finished tree stands about 20” tall. 

In class, there will be examples of hooked and wool appliqué mats, gourd ornaments, mini baskets, and needle felted animals --- all great complements for your Wooly Pine Tree! 

Jackie and Mary work diligently through class so each student leaves with a beautiful and finished Wooly Pine Tree!
