Needle felting is fun! You will be guided step-by-step through the process to transform hand-dyed wool from the instructor’s flock of sheep from her family’s century-old homestead farm outside Hayward, Wisconsin into your very own adorable felted bird!

  • A complete materials kit will be mailed from the instructor’s Wisconsin farm directly to the address you specify at checkout.
  • The included materials kit comes with enough wool to make two birds, so you can perfect your technique on the second one after class
  • Experience the magic of needle felting with tips to add to your growing skillset
  • Enjoy the process of creating a cute, wooly friend, fun to keep or give as a gift!
