our needle felted creatures

Thank you for visiting my site. If you have been here before, you may be wondering about the new selection of items. I have put my leatherwork on pause and am creating wool sculptures. Using just wool roving, I am able to craft these creatures and other items out of seemingly nothing. Thank you for your time and for viewing my work.

Many of the items here are being exhibited currently at Studio Place Arts (SPA) in Barre at the “Celebration” show, along with stunning works from other members of the SPA artist community.

needle felting class at the Montpelier Senior Center in November 2023

Starting November 7 and ending 12/5, I will be teaching needle felting classes at the Montpelier Senior Center. The cost for MSAC Montpelier Members is $50, plus $17 for materials. The materials include all your wool and ancillary materials for making creatures or holiday ornaments.

This class will focus on 3D needle felting, creating objects by building on layers of felted wool. The class will begin with participants following the instructor, building simple shapes, such as mushrooms and owls. Class members will have ample opportunity to make gifts and ornaments of their own design.
