Wet Felting Workshop — Passed

I love felting and I love teaching others to felt!  It is very relaxing and fun!  I am offering several workshops as the holidays approach.

Each participant will make a personally designed super soft merino and silk scarf or wrap.  I provide all the materials as part of the workshop fee.

Cost:

Cost is $75 per participant at least 24 hours ahead of class start time.  I must have at least  one participant registered 24 hours in advance to run the class.

Due to space constraints, each workshop is limited to four participants.  Preregistration is encouraged to secure your place.  There are no refunds, but I can get you into a different class if, for a good reason, you cannot make the one you registered for.

Participants must bring their own meals and snacks.

Friction Fire Workshop — Passed

img_0288
Fire in my earth oven in my spiral cabin in the Cascades.

Fire is a blessing and a wonderful friend.  Learning to make friction fire really gets you in touch with fire and creates a relationship between you and fire you may never have felt before.  I love to teach others to make fire in this ancient way.

I will provide the materials for you to make your own friction fire kit of cedar wood.  I have knives I can loan you to use or you can bring your own non folding sheath knife good for carving.  To carve a kit and make fire takes humility, skill and coordination, and seldom comes easily.  I allow many hours for a workshop because people’s abilities vary widely.  I cannot guarantee that YOU will make fire at this workshop, but I can let you come to future workshops until you make fire yourself.  We will discuss knife safety and take every precaution to keep everyone safe.

Once you know fire in this way, what a great gift to pass on to your family and friends.

Who can register:

Participants must be 16 years or older unless accompanied by a parent to assist them.  Participants must use knife safety rules at all times.  Participants (and their parents if a minor) must realize that though all precautions are taken to keep people safe, injuries can occur and by attending this class you will not hold me or my family liable for your injury.  Each participant or parent of participant must sign a release of liability and take responsibility for their own safety.

Cost:

Cost for this 7 hour workshop is $75 per participant at least 24 hours in advance.  I must have at least one participant registered 24 hours in advance to run the workshop.

What to bring:

Participants must bring their own meals and snacks.

Participants must dress for the temperature outside as we will be working under cover outdoors.

Class Dates and Times:

Saturday, Dec. 3, 2016   11am-6pm
