Following is a sample of classes offered previously in my studio. If you are interested in one of these classes, or have an idea for something you would like to learn, grab a friend and send me an email. It only takes two to make a class go.

Felt Scuff Slippers

Sometimes the best kind of slipper is the kind you can scoot into quickly to scuff around the house. Make several pair for guests who leave their shoes at your front door. These slippers have no heel, they are a backless scuff.

In this workshop, students will make a pattern based on their own foot, felt one pair of slippers, then adjust the pattern as necessary to make the slippers wider or longer and felt a second pair.

  1. This sounds so enticing. Wish I could be there. Wish I could have another life to explore such creative outlets.
    I am so proud of you. Mom

  2. Great site! I’ve been interested in learning needle felting and wet felting for some time. Been doing lots of research and feel a great way to start may be with your help. Will you write me about your fees. I’m not so concerned about creating specific projects– more interested in learning techniques and starting off on the right foot. I’m artist and a quick learner. Thank you! Leah

    Thanks!
