Halloween needle felting class coming to Penticton

Have you ever wanted to use wool to create a ‘bewitchingly creepy pumpkin face’?

In preparation of the spookiest time of the year, the Okanagan School of the Arts (OSA) is offering a seasonal Halloween workshop.

Nikki Marshall of Okanagan Dye Works will be teaching needle felting on Sunday, Oct. 25 at the Elks Lodge upper hall at 343 Ellis Street, Penticton.

Participants will use wool to form and sculpt a “bewitchingly creepy pumpkin face.”

There will be a large space to allow for physical distancing during the workshop. All supplies are included in the registration fee. Prior felting experience is an asset, but if participants don’t have any experience, they will require at least some knowledge of what needle felting is, says a news release from the OSA.

“We had an outstanding response to Nikki’s previous needle felting class,” said OSA executive director Kim Palmer. “Not only did we sell out – we received excellent reviews from our participants. We’re delighted to have Nikki on our roster, and we’re thrilled to offer such a fun Halloween workshop.”

Pre-registration is required. Participants can register at okanaganschoolofthearts.com/courses.
