Flowers for Mom – A Beginner Felting Workshop for Parent and Child

Join us for a special Mother’s Day themed felting workshop for parent and child! In this beginner friendly workshop, you will get to choose your favorite colors from a beautiful assortment of wool as you learn how to transform these colorful bits of wool fluff into beautiful felted flowers! Wet felting is a process that requires only soap, water, wool, and your hands to create felt; so unlike needle felting, there are no needles involved, making this a great activity for adults as well as children. Each pair of participants will work together to create their flowers. All materials are included, and you’ll leave the workshop with two beautiful flowers to take home just in time for Mother’s Day.

This activity is best suited for children ages 6 +, but younger children can also participate with help from their parent!

Please note that the ticket price includes registration for 2 people (1 parent and 1 child). Want to register more than one child? Simply purchase your ticket here, and leave a note at checkout with how many participating children you will be bringing in total. We’ll reserve them a spot now and get them registered  the day of the workshop when you come in! Each additional child is $10.

Date:  Friday, May 10

Time:  4:00 – 5:30pm

Location:  Grey Fox Mercantile – 70 Genesee Street, New Hartford, NY 13413

We’re Opening a Store!!!

After running Grey Fox Felting for four years, I’ve decided to expand my business into Grey Fox Mercantile, a collaboration between my husband and me, and our first brick and mortar storefront! We’ve located a perfect location in our hometown of New Hartford, NY, we’ve signed the lease, and we’ve started working on the 700 square feet that will become our retail and workshop space.

a peek at our future retail and workshop space!

In this space, we plan to offer our full in-house line of felting kits and original felted animal sculptures, the beautiful selection of felting wool in virtually every color imaginable that you’ve come to know through our online presence, as well as a curated selection of handmade goods by artisans we love. We will host free craft nights for the community, and we will offer workshops and fiber arts-based birthday/special occasion parties for guests of all ages. We’re working really hard to transform this space to make it a truly unique place to learn about fiber arts and find beautiful artisan goods.

We’re planning to open this spring, and we can’t wait to welcome you! If you’d like to follow along on our progress, you can find us on Instagram @greyfoxmercantile and @greyfoxfelting
