It has been a felty-full week at LF!
Last Saturday, we had full workshop for needle felting simple animals. We had 11 bunnies and a fox … missed a few pics, but here is a glimpse at our fun bunch of humans and furry felties!
On Friday, we had a fabulous time Needle Felting Gnomes! What a great job these gals did!!
Did you catch our WOOLY WEDNESDAY BROADCAST?
We had so much FUN visiting with you all! If you missed it…you can still see it in our fb group…AND You can pause it and comment. Your comments will be in line with other comments that came in at the same time!
We answered questions, and gave demonstrations, we gave away fun prizes and did show-n-tells of things made by our community members…it was a blast.
Our plan was to do this once a month…but after this week, we are going to “shoot for” 2x a month. 🙂
Next Wooly Wed. is scheduled for WED, FEB 1st at 2pm CST
Broadcast is in our fb group: LIVING FELT FRIENDS
Early Bird Registration for this FUN WORKSHOP is Officially Open!
Felting RETREAT – Needle Felting Fantastical Art Dolls
Thurs Mar 23th 10:00am – Sun Mar 26th 10:00am
Marie Spaulding has been needle felting dolls since she first learned to felt. Learn her techniques for making exhibit quality dolls and fantasy characters including pointy noses, ears and lively eyes and hands. Explore wet felting and nuno felting for interesting costumes.
*Students will be free to put their emphasis where desired. If you want to make three heads instead of a full doll, we can support that. If you prefer to spend time on costuming over articulated fingers, you will be supported and coached towards seeing your goals met.
If you want to make a Santa, you can do that! This will be a great opportunity to follow your inspiration. If you prefer to attempt a more abstract doll using found objects, that will be supported also.
Early Bird Registration JAN 1 thru JAN 31
Register or Learn More
*Registration now open to participants wishing to stay offsite.
If you are flying in, call us for assistance with transfers – we can carpool to the B&B so you will not need a rental car.
We hope you can join us this year to learn new things and make new friends!
