Wool Feather Tree
Cost: $65 (includes kit) + supplies

with Sue Sullivan

Sat. 9/28 9AM-4PM

Students in this beginner-friendly class will spend a day creating their own unique wool feather tree. Choose a color of wool from three different options to get exactly the look you want – we’ll have white, black or green available! Students will learn to wrap the wool securely to the wire “branch” and attach these to the dowel rod “trunk”. A sturdy wood base is part of the kit, which is included in the class price. Students save $5 when they purchase appropriate spring-loaded scissors from Silk Road Textiles for this class!


Fiber Fairy Doll
Cost: $100 + supplies
with Liz Marten
Skill Level: Beginner

Sat. 10/5 9:30AM-4:30PM

Using templates, create an eclectic and fun-loving seated doll. Learn finger-turning and wiring, face-painting and sculpting, and get ideas for trims and embellishments. Students will be able to complete their doll during class, but will need to add embellishments at home.


Wet Felted Flowers
Cost: $35 + supplies
with Terry Owen
Skill Level: No Experience Necessary

Tue. 10/15 9:30AM-12:30PM

Learn the art of wet felting while creating two three-dimensional flowers. Choose wool roving in colors you love for a perfect embellishment!


Silk Wool Fusion
Cost: $35 + supplies
with Terry Owen
Skill Level: No Experience Necessary

Sat. 10/19 9AM-2PM

Create a unique silk scarf embellished with wool fibers! Silk Wool Fusion is a technique developed by SRT owner Terry Owen, using ArtFelt to simplify the process of nuno felting. Nuno felting bonds loose fiber, usually wool, into a sheer fabric such as silk gauze, creating a lightweight felt. Using ArtFelt gives the creator more control over the process and can produce some very cool effects. Be sure to choose your colors before class!


Paint with Wool: Needle Felted Fun
Cost: $35 + supplies
with Terry Owen
Skill Level: No Experience Necessary

Wed. 10/23 1-4PM

Using a photo or other image for inspiration, create your own fiber art piece with wool roving. Students will learn the art of needle felting and how to blend roving for a watercolor effect. When choosing your inspiration image, remember that landscapes are an ideal project for beginners!
