New Classes from the Potwin Fiber Artisans!

I have a brand new list of felting classes being offered by the Potwin Fiber Artistans!

(I am not teaching these classes, but this is the group I work with when I teach.)

Felting Classes With Anna Walker:
**Classes will be held downstairs in the Potwin Presbyterian Church. To enroll, contact Anna Walker. She has limited amounts of kits/supplies available for purchase. Also check out http://annasplaceofholding.com for more resources and information.

Monday, January 23, 6pm to 8pm

FELT THIS! Needle felted flower class min # for class=4, max=12 Fee: $15

Instructor, Anna Walker aka @FELTit on Twitter, annasplaceofholding@gmail.com

Supplies you need to bring: Felting needle(s), foam base, an ounce or two of wool fibers in colors of your choosing, chenille stems. (A limited number of needle felting kits with all of the above supplies listed will be available on the day of the class for $15.)

Explore the ancient practice of creating the fabric known as felt from wispy fibers in amazing colors. No experience is needed for this class as you learn how to blend and combine different colors and textures of the fibers to create a flower, realistic or fantastical. By the end of this 2 hour class, you should have your flower mostly completed and ready for you to take home and turn into a brooch, hair accessory, or to place in a bud vase for admiration.

FELT THIS! Wet Felted Lariat Wrap Bracelet class min. # for class=4, max.=12 Fee: $30

Instructor, Anna Walker aka @FELTit on Twitter, annasplaceofholding@gmail.com

Supplies you need to bring: An old towel to transport your lariat home, and two to four ounces of dyed wool roving-NOT SUPERWASH! I recommend merino or BFL blends of no more than 30% other fiber like silk or bamboo. (Instructor will bring soap, bubble wrap, and other tools for wet felting. Dress in comfortable clothing that could get wet and non-slip shoes)

During this class you will take strips of the wool roving and connect strips together to form a lariat. You will also learn the techniques to create a self-clasp from the dried lariat, and have ideas for further embellishment to take home with you at the end of class.

Monday, February 13, 6pm to 8pm

During this class you will lay out the wool roving in several layers and work them into solid felt. You will have instruction on various blending and layering possibilities based upon your roving selections to create your set of four coasters. You will leave the class with suggestions for further needle felting embellishment of your coasters for personalization.

  1. Hi, I emailed you about a month or two ago about learning to spin and if there is a group that meets regularly to help learn to spin. I got that info, but do not have a wheel yet and am wondering if you or anyone you know has a used single treadle wheel for sale? I am really wanting to learn to spin but do not want to buy a brand new wheel at this time.

    Any info would be great!!!

    Thank you,

    Susan Daniel
