Making wire armatures for your creations is a skill set that will take your needle felting, and art to the next level. In this workshop we will use images of a reindeer in order to understand how to construct a correctly proportioned wire armature. Building a wire frame gives strength to your work and makes it bendable to pose. Once the armature is made we will look at how to start adding pipe cleaners, core wool, and top cost to bring the reindeer to life.
