When Booking a workshop:  It is important that participants are aware of the following: 

  1. Needle Felting is addictive and very enjoyable by all ages.
  2. This is a hands on, tactile and enjoyable art that teaches patience.
  3. Participants need to stab wool with sharp needles for long periods of time.
  4. The supplies are provided & part of the workshop (fees applicable as advertised)
  5. Instructions for each project are provided.
  6. Artists secrets revealed, with emphasis on making by hand with mindfulness.
  7. Participants do not require artistic experience (an ability to follow directions helps).
  8. Mini Demonstration & “Make & Take” & “Try It Stations” are available.
  9. Half Day Workshop 3.5 hours (this allows for a short break) + extra hour optional.
  10. One Day Workshop, 6.5 hours (including half hour for lunch + short breaks).
  11. Two Day Workshop, 6.5 hours each day (including half hour for lunch + breaks)
  12. Three Day Workshop, 5.5 hours each day (including half hour for lunch).
  13. A majority of the workshops are for all levels.
  14. Workshops are not designed for participants to finish necessarily during the allotted workshop time, for best results are often found when more time can be applied. (depending).
  15. Needle Felting requires one hand to stab with, and the other hand to hold & sculpt with. All parts of the hand are used, primarily the very tips of our fingers and thumb. There is just as much “plucking”, “pinching” “pulling” “tugging” “twisting” “twirling” “brushing” & touching of the fibre while felting, as there is stabbing of it with the needle. Participants are encouraged to avoid long fancy nails (gel nails) as they inhibit the ability to work the wool.

Workshops are constantly being developed, each to instruct specific techniques with new designs to keep the felting community inspired.

Elements I consider when designing instructions and felted item: color (vibrant & cheerful) Subject (cute endearing and positive feeling) with the overall effect of being something amazing, touchable, and precious.

I look forward to hearing from you.
