We had so much fun putting together this happy little promo video to show you just how fun my Felt Alive Needle Felted Dolls Workshop can be.  


We filmed this needle felting workshop in my studio to give you a Kay's-eye view of a Felt Alive needle felted doll coming to life from start to finish and EVERY step in between! 

Zoom shots capture the most intricate details.  Watch up close and felt along with me as I needle felt a fully jointed, fully fun & original Felt Alive Needle Felted Doll.  

I narrated the entire 10 hours - unscripted!  Sharing my insight into this amazing art craft while explaining every step in detail makes this video workshop so much more than just instructions.  I've been told that learning to needle felt with this video tutorial is like learning from a friend. 

If you think that you could never learn how to make such detailed dolls, please think again.  I was right where you are now not so long ago;

I can teach You how fun and rewarding it truly is to needle felt one of a kind art dolls using only wool and barbed felting needles. 

Many of my students had never touched a felting needle before learning from Felt Alive Needle Felting Workshops.  The photos in the student gallery show the incredible results from following along with me and learning to Felt Alive.  

The instructions in this workshop are not pattern-based.  Instead, I teach a set of techniques that can be repeated over and over, never creating the same character twice.  I do not teach you how to make a  specific character, instead I guide you along as you develop a character that is unique as you or I. 

If you want to learn the secrets of bringing wool to life in ways that make people smile, follow me and Felt Alive!

Isaac, son of Abraham Gen 21-22 by Kay R.

"Kay's DVDs clearly show every step with easy to follow directions. I particularly like that she shows many different ways to do a step (such as different hairstyles). The most valuable is that she shows her mistakes and then shows you how she fixes them--when I mess up, I know what to do!!  Lots of fun!  Thanks Kay!
