Classes

Upcoming Classes:

Here are the confirmed classes on my schedule for 2019 and the beginning of 2020.
Due to all the complexities of the full-size felted fleece class, I will only be teaching it at North House Folk School and in my home studio. The chair pad/pillow top class is the same technique, but on a smaller, more manageable scale. If you are interested in coming to my studio for a class, or scheduling me to teach at your venue, just email me and we can set something up that works for both our schedules. I can open my studio classes up to the public or do individual sessions.

Customized Classes:  

I am available to teach sessions at your location or my studio in Ogilvie, MN.

I love to share the magic and fun of felting with others. I have taught hundreds of students over the past decade. I never tire of seeing the students' enthusiasm when they create a piece using their own sense of color and style. 

 Come visit the farm, see the sheep, have some great home-cooked food, and felt a project!
