Finger puppet raccoon livestream course
The raccoon is an absolutely adorable hero that invariably brings a smile to everyone. Let's create one together on a live stream course!
The finger puppet raccoon stream course is a new and interesting format for online learning. We will work together live!
This format is as close as possible to live workshops and it involves a lot of communication and teamwork. I show the process of creating a cute raccoon step by step, and you work in parallel with me making you own raccoon. I answer all your questions in the live chat and help you get the project done as efficiently as possible.
The stream course is designed for a beginner to be able to cope with, I give very detailed instructions, so there is absolutely nothing to be afraid of. In addition, you will have a record with unlimited access.
To create finger puppets, you need not so many materials and tools - one toy weighs only 5 g of wool, and from specific tools you only need a plastic kitchen drawer mat from IKEA (or similar), as well as a needle for needle felting. These tools will need to be prepared in advance, but the pleasure of felting is guaranteed! Believe me, I have been dealing with felted animals for 11 years, and the pleasure has not waned.
In general, finger toys were originally the actors of the children's home theatre. Children adore them. But adults do not remain indifferent to this tiny sweetness. Most of my friends have similar crumbs in their pockets or desktops for a long time, everyone wants such a gift. After all, we are children inside and we love to play. Even when we play adult games, we need relaxation and good mood. And here these tiny creatures work their best - they make you smile! And you also smile while making them. Felting such toys is a complex art therapy - there is wool, hand work and wonderful animals. Total positive.

I am happy to share all my technics and knowledges for your personal use, but I am against of teaching based on the course materials and making of exact replicas of my work for commercial purposes. The goal of my course is to teach the technology of creating a toy using an example based on my design, so that in the future you can use all technological methods and independently develop as an original author.
