Kids’ Group Felted Mural Project

 

 

Needle Felting with Kids Mural Project featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

Hi All! Marie here 🙂

I had an incredible day this week visiting with Michelle Stoeffler and her approx. 180 students at Deer Park Middle School.

A Group Mural project was begun, I hope that in the not too distant future we can see how the students finish it.

We have made for them large segments to needle felt onto — around the theme of Peace, Unity, Love and Friendship. Once the students are all done, they will have murals that come together like a puzzle, and can even have parts interchangeable with other classes. In all, there were 6 classes … so there will be 6 murals each with 10 segments.

These kids were brilliant, of course! I loved seeing all of their eclectic art in the room — and being in such a creative space 🙂 What a gift it was for me to spend the day with them!

I took a TON of pictures, but they will not all fit into a collage. If you would like to see more Living Felt facebook page.

The next week we received this from the teacher …

“Check it out Marie Spaulding #livingfelt !
Our students were begging to needle felt again today!
Thank you for introducing almost 200 youngsters to this medium!
We broke 17 needles today but the kids were still using the broken ones
because they loved so much.”

Realistic Life-Size Squirrel

Felted Squirrel by Tessa Bold featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

Wow — He looks so real! 🙂

“A life-size squirrel made from Living Felt wools. Core wool over a wire armature and then three different colors of Corriedale for his coat. And of course my favorite horse hair whiskers! I gave him a little wire chest loop so he can hang on a nail like this or hang on a wall like he’s climbing. A great way to display him to keep him away from the cats and dogs who are already freaking out over” there’s a squirrel in the house!”

Fluffy Felted Dog

Felted Dog by Melanie Litchfield featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

Isn’t she a beauty?! We just love all that fluff!!

“You all are so nice and I am glad to be in this group of fiber artists …a nice break from finger stabbing ;-}. Here is a commission piece I had trouble giving up but making a new Samoyed now. This girl is made of layers of corriedale and then added fur of different specialty fiber including silk and merino.

She has glass eyes and is about 8″ tall. The core and corriedale wool is from LivingFelt.com and they also carry silk and merino fibers.”
