My workshops and retreats are designed for participants to develop new skills and explore the limitless possibilities for creative expression through feltmaking. And, we have a lot of fun while we’re at it!

Individuals and groups are welcome to study at my home studio in Charlotte, Vermont where I teach and host guest instructors. You may also choose to participate in workshops offered on the road in New England and beyond.

Here’s a sample of workshop possibilities for a range of skill levels. Let me know what you want to learn and I’ll customize classes, too.
