feltmaking classes

I am going to be offering two feltmaking workshops in September. Tentatively scheduled for September 22 and 29. Students will learn the fundamentals of soap and water feltmaking. We'll make a flat felt project and a resist project. With those two techniques in your pocket you can make everything from scarves and rugs to pouches, bags, seamless slippers and hats.

The class will be 4 hours long and includes materials and a light lunch in a beautiful garden setting in Santa Rosa. Cost of the workshop is $60. If you are interested, you can send me an email using that pretty little button there on the side that says email me.

Later I will teach an advanced class and a needlefelting class, and maybe one for kids because kids love making felt and it's really fun to do classes with kids!

oh, yes! I was hoping you'd come, Michelle. If those days don't work for you we can choose another one.

And those little animals are so cute Jessamyn. I had seen a Japanese feltmaking book that showed how to make those tiny guys. I wonder if I could make something that realistic looking.
