From basic needle-felting to more advanced skills, children (ages 8 and up) to adults, I am available to teach groups up to 12 felters here at the farm or at your location. I am also experienced with prepping fiber and spinning yarn on both the spindle and the wheel and am available to demo those skills at your event. Contact me today for availability and pricing. Hourly rate, travel and materials may all be billed seperately.
