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
