Workshops

As an artist with years of experience, I enjoy sharing my knowledge and techniques. My courses are reasonably priced, and typically include most of the materials required.

 

Drop me an email if there is something in particular that you are interested in learning.

 

I am on hiatus from teaching workshops as I have too many other commitments at this time.

What's Felting? Try it out!

Create a simple flap pouch for your cell phone, eyeglasses or mad money! In this 2 hour class you will "get your hands wet", literally, learning this simple, fun wet felting process. All supplies will be provided. A minimum of 2 participants are needed to scedule a class. Please contact me if you are interested. The workshop fee is $30. 

Nuno Felting

I will teach a workshop on nuno felting at a time scheduled that is convenient to both the students and myself. The class runs approximately 5-6 hours. You will learn the process of nuno felting while also learning about the types and quality of wool, what fabrics lend themselves to this process and what embellishments can be added. The student will complete a scarf to adorn themselves. A minimum of 2 participants are needed to scedule a class. I will provide the majority of the supplies (inc wool & silk) needed. Please contact me if you are interested. The workshop fee is $95.

 

Not in the area? My friend Terri Pike has a wonderful website with how-to videos at www.feltinglessons.com.

Wet Felting Techniques

This class is in the planning stages (it will be offered in spring) and is a good compliment to the Nuno Felting class. Here you will make samplers of 10 different felting techniques! The techniques covered will be: Wet Felting, Nuno Felting, Creating Fringe and Tassels, Lattice, Tracery or Open Work, Cobweb, Shibori, 3D, Wave and Inlay. It will need to be a 2 day class to cover all of the techniques.

Contact me if you are interested.
