Felting Stories

Growing from the love of my work as a fiber artist, an activity always enjoyed by my Moon Child  and Sandy Pond School  participants is also available as a class for small groups (minimum of two, maximum of eight),  suitable for ages seven years old* and above. "Felting Stories" introduces the needle felting technique, which the children use to create scenes or small figures that relate to a story I have shared with them, or are free develop a story of their own. (After all, all art is a story!)

$30 per child class fee


 Materials provided for use:  wool fiber, felting needle, needle holder, foam mat. (the same materials are made available for sale as a kit)   *Due to the use of sharp needles, younger children welcome only with close parental supervision.  Additionally I offer wet felting classes for young children.

The wool I use in these classes, as in my own creations,  is local Maine wool. Felting is one of the crafts/arts I discuss during groups visits to talk about my Maine Made products "From the Ground Up" , which in 2011 was also incorporated into some of my Read ME visits, and has been available as such ever sinceTo schedule, contact:
