Leah Cathleen Donald :: Get Ready For Spring workshops (2019)

Updated: Oct 27, 2021


Leah Cathleen Donald of ArtFelt Studio is at Edmonton’s The Fibre Nook this weekend  (April 6th & 7th) teaching two felting classes: Wet Felted Birdhouse & Needle felting Art


Wet Felted Birdhouse: Saturday, April 6, 2019 

Wet felting is thousands of years old and has a rich history in many cultures. In this class, you will learn about different breeds of wool & their properties. The class will start with making a sample piece of felt from roving to help us understand the unique, natural properties of wool. From there, you will put your new-found knowledge into making a felted birdhouse. These pods can be hung outside and will last for a few years.

Wet felting is a hands-on, sometimes messy process. Wear comfortable clothes you won’t mind getting a little wet. All supplies are included in the class.

Date:  Saturday, April 6 from 9 am to 3 pm, with a 45-minute lunchbreak

Cost: $95 + GST; includes required $15 supply kit.

Prerequisite: None

Maximum Registrants: 8


Needle felting Art: Sunday, April 7, 2019

Needle felting is a fun way to create art using roving wool. Bring a reference photo or image of a landscape or flower to recreate into a felted art piece. You will learn about wool properties, wool processing, and how to properly use materials and tools to needle felt. All supplies will be provided in the class.

Date:  Sunday, April 7 from 9 am to 3 pm, with a 45-minute lunchbreak

Cost: $95 + GST; includes required $15 supply kit.

Prerequisite: None
