Felting Classes

SHI-07 Wee Felting WorldFamily Project
August 2 & 3, 2018
10:00 am – 12:00 noon
Location: Sandwich Home Industries 32 Main Street, Center Sandwich
Tuition: $85 per family of 3 or 4, materials included.
At least one adult must accompany children
Both large and small families are welcome!

A class for families including children 3 years old and up will be able to create with needle-felt, a play-scape, or diorama approximately 18 by 24 inches in size.

Session 1: Create fields, a pond, flowers, a shelter, and paths.
Session 2: Make a tree, some rocks or bushes, an animal, and a person or two (could also be a fairy, gnome, or mermaid). Everyone works on different parts and then combines everything into one interactive project.

Please note that larger families may need to purchase extra materials as they could make a more complicated project with more figures and structures. Smaller families or individuals will get all the materials and instruction, but they may need to work more outside of class as there won’t be many helping hands. The break between classes will allow families the time to brainstorm and plan out what they would like to include in their project. All ages are welcome.

SHI-09 Felting – Simply Sandwich Souvenir
Instructor: Diane Johnson
August 11th, 2018
10:00 am -12:00 noon
Location: Sandwich Home Industries 32 Main Street, Center Sandwich
Cost: $40, materials and felting kit included.

Center Sandwich has a number of small herds of sheep, goats, and alpacas. Whether you live here year-round, come here seasonally, or are visiting the area for the first time, this is a chance to make a truly personal souvenir of Sandwich.  You may choose to make a sheep, an angora goat, or an alpaca. The core wool will come from one of the sheep at the Sandwich Creamery (after class, you can take your project to the Creamery, eat some ice cream and visit the sheep and cows). The surface fleece will come from an animal that lives here in town. Along with that wool fleece, you will receive a picture with the name of the animal from which the fiber was shorn
