What you'll do
Class is in my home studio, where you can gather inspiration from my fun menagerie of felt creatures. To begin, you will learn the basics of using the needles with the wool via a small, easy project like a pendant or ornament. Then you can choose which larger project you would like to create -a fox? A kitty? A bird? Whatever you fancy, I will teach you how to create. You should have time to create one pendant and one animal during class, but if you have chosen a larger creation that will take more time, you can take some materials and a few needles home with you to finish your unique artwork.
I teach the art of needle felting to adults, teens and children. I have BFAs in Art and Fine Arts from the UW and have taught these fun, versatile art classes for over ten years. For the past four years, I have been teaching needle felting clubs at the Seattle Waldorf School and with Seattle Artist League.
I am famous for my giant tea collection. Feel free to peruse it and select your favorite!
Felting needles, wool roving and flat felt. Yarn, pipe cleaners and wire. Scissors, sewing supplies.
Where you'll be
The felting class will take place at my home art studio, a magical place where you will be surrounded by my colorful paintings, ceramic sculptures and a menagerie of fabulous felt creatures to inspire your own unique creations!
Things to keep in mind
For a full refund, cancel at least 7 days before the experience is scheduled to start or within 24 hours of purchase.
Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside of the Airbnb website or app.
Up to 6 guests ages 8 and up can attend. Prior experience needle felting is not necessary, but so be aware that the needles and scissors we will use are sharp, so if children attend, be sure they are capable of focusing on the work attentively.
You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.
Come enjoy learning a new art craft! Needle felting is versatile and fun, with all the soft, multicolored wool, yarn and felt. It can take some patience, learning to handle the needles, as they are sharp and care must be used while using them. Feel free to bring a snack to go with my tea offering.
