I am so excited to announce that I am teaching felting classes at The DIYCave here in Bend.

My first one will be needle felting Halloween decorations – Sunday the 18th at 1pm.

Create 2-3 handcrafted Halloween decorations with fiber artist, Claire Demarest. This class is great for both beginners and those who have some experience with needle felting.  Claire will teach the basics as well as share her tips and tricks learned from her own experience as an artist.  Decoration choices for beginners include pumpkins, ghosts, and spiders.  If you have some experience create the owl or witch. Fibers used are always from ethically treated, happy animals and colored with non-toxic dyes. All materials included.

During class, you can buy a take-home kit that includes the 3 main needle sizes, a high quality felting pad, and a sample of wool colors to keep your creative juices flowing at home.

* Needles are sharp and barbed and used in very close proximity to your fingers, so steady hands and good hand-eye coordination are required.  Children will need the watchful eye of an adult and the youngest recommended age is 10.

Owl_Pumpkins1FeltingClassPlease join my class to learn how to needle felt and create several great take-home projects. Pass this along to anyone you think might like to attend. The class fills up at 12 people. If there is enough interest I can book a second class. Thank you for your support, this is new venture for me and I know it will be a success!
