Felting with Farren – Santa Ornament & Lunch with Alpacas

December 7, 2023 @ 11:00 am 2:00 pm

Ticket Information

Needle felting is a process that sculpts wool into any shape you imagine.  Wool fibers are covered with scales.  When you agitate the fibers, the scales lock together and thus, the felting occurs.  In needle felting we use special barbed needles that lock the scales of the fiber together.  What this looks like in real time, is stabbing fluffy colorful wool over and over with sharp needles.  We will be using a variety of fibers for this project. This is a beginner friendly class.

Classes are held in the comfort of our converted double bay garage.  It is on the street level and equipped with a powder room.  If the class is full we may ask you to park at the bottom of the driveway and walk up the short distance past the alpaca fields.  We have a farm shop on the property that you are welcome to visit.

Please BYO Lunch/Snack/Beverage.  We will take a break in the middle of class to enjoy a visit with the alpacas and have a quick bite before we finish up.  We have a refrigerator if you need to store any of your items.  This is a great opportunity to learn a new skill, develop a new passion, bring a friend and spend some time together doing something unique.  Whatever your reason for coming, we welcome you and are excited to share the day with you.
