In this video artist Megan Hammer covers the use of the multi-needle tool as well as using the single-needle tool for details. The skills you will focus on during this lesson are freehand painting with wool and creating thin lines.
During this video you will also naturally review how to handle the wool and pull it apart correctly, how to hold the tools, the needle-felting and punching process, color, and more. Your final project for this tutorial will be the life-cycle of a caterpillar on a milkweed leaf. This is the perfect video to get any teacher, parent, or student excited about needle-felting! This video would also go well with a science lesson, a third grade gardening lesson, a botany lesson for fifth graders, or even a science lesson for the older grades.
