We'll make a favorite photo come to life in this class! Bring a photo of someone you love -- maybe it's your child, mom or dad, grandma or grandpa, your best friend, or try a selfie -- we'll felt a 3-D version that you can frame and display. We'll build the head and shoulders out of wool on a wire armature, following the unique proportions and coloring of your subject; we'll work on facial expressions, hairstyles, even clothing (if there's time), to create a three-dimensional portrait. It's sort of a doll, sort of a soft and fuzzy 3-D photo! Fun to make and a real attention-getter when displayed. Make one for you or for a gift.
