BRAINERD — Crossing Arts Alliance is hosting a class to create needle felted beehive pincushions from 10 a.m. -1 p.m. or 2 p.m. -5 p.m. on Saturday, April 2.

This class will be lead by instructor Lisa Jordan. This class is suitable for beginning needle-felters ages 10 and up. Using a specially barbed needle and fluffy wool, students will create an adorable and functional pincushion with a tiny bee-topped pin. Completed pincushions will be about three inches tall.

Students will be provided with all the wool and tools they need to complete the project, and will keep their mats, needles, and leftover supplies after the class. Jordan has been felting since 2006. She enjoys sharing this medium with others and has taught throughout the state. By day she is the Director of Crossing Arts.

This class is $30. Limited to 6 students. Masks are required. This class will be held at Crossing Arts in downtown Brainerd. Crossing Arts members, as a benefit of membership, will receive a $5 gift card when attending the class.
