This is a 3-hour class, beginner friendly but also a good skill builder for intermediate level students. And great for Valentine’s Day!
Explore the magic of needle felting with a peaceful, floral folk heart and take your color work skills to a new level.
In this class, I’ll show you how to stretch your felt backing onto an embroidery hoop and keep it tight for ease of use and how to transform the beautiful array of hand dyed roving from my farm’s sheep into your own interpretation of the design.
Enough wool of each color will be supplied, so you can work any of the colors on the motif as suits your taste.
Focus will be given to shape creation and three-dimensionality.
At the end, I’ll offer suggestions for using or mounting your finished piece. Bring your creative spirit and love of wool!
A Kit will be mailed to each student. Registration will close one week before the class date to allow for mailing. The kit includes: plenty of wool, backing with printed design, and felting needles ($30 plus $15 shipping).

Online Class General Information:
- The class fee includes a kit, which will be mailed to you. Be sure to sign up by January 31, to receive the kit. And if you want the kit to be mailed to an address other than your billing address, be sure to include that information in ‘Order Notes’ when you register.
- Each registration is for one “device” (one computer, tablet, phone). This is to ensure we don’t have more people registered than the instructor is comfortable with having in a class. Please be respectful of this guideline and purchase multiple class spots if more than one person from your household is interested in attending.
- You will need a reliable Internet connection as well as a computer or device with which to access the online class. Please arrive 10 minutes before class begins, to ensure your connection and device are ready when the class begins.
- Each class will be held using Zoom technology. You will receive a link and a password and information on how to log on, prior to the class. You will be able to view and ask questions during the class.
General Age Policy:
All classes are for adults (18+) unless otherwise noted.
Be aware we may cancel 5 days before class date if a minimum number of registrations not reached. We work to balance teachers' need to plan for a class with students' busy schedules -- not an easy task. Please register as early as possible!
