Wet Felting Workshop – Nuno Felted Neck Warmer

Learn everything you need to know to begin nuno felting in a relaxed and supportive environment. In this beginner friendly workshop, you will learn how to transform colorful bits of wool fluff along with other fibers such as cotton, silk, and ramie into a beautiful, wearable neck warmer! Nuno is Japanese for “cloth,” and nuno felting is a process that allows one to bond different pieces of fiber and sheer fabric together through the process of wet felting (where soap, water, wool, and the friction and pressure of your hands are used to create felt). No experience is necessary, and all materials are included. Coffee and tea will be served as well.

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.
