Create an imaginary gnome using needle felting techniques

Felt-a-Gnome is a fun workshop in which participants create an imaginary gnome using needle felting techniques. Building with a core of wool, merino top and locks, each gnome will be limited only by the imagination of its creator. All materials are provided for $25 for beginners, or $10 for those participants who have previously taken a needle felting class and bring their own needles and felting pad.

Glenna fell in love with the felting process after taking a beginning felting class at the Hoffman Center with artist Jeanine Rumble.  Since then, Glenna has taken numerous classes.  She finds both needle and wet felting offer unlimited opportunities to create beautiful sculptures, wearables, vessels, and more. She says: “Almost anything you can make with clay or yarn is possible with felting…and it is so soft!”

Glenna, now retired, taught art at the junior high school level and currently teaches at numerous community art shows in North Tillamook County, and in her home. She recently taught a felting workshop at the Hoffman Center. Her art has been on display in the Hoffman Center’s Gallery from time to time.
