LIVE Felt Alive Needle Felting Workshops! 

felt alive studio needle felting workshops

Would you like to join me and my cast of Felt Alive needle felted characters in my home studio for some serious hands-on needle felting fun?  

With small group sizes of 4-6 participants, your experience will be very personalized and you will take away the skills and knowledge you'll need on your own needle felting journey.   Private Group Workshops can also be arranged - learning how to needle felt with a group of friends is SO much fun!  

Materials and supplies are included with each workshop and our full range of Felt Alive Needle Felting Supplies are available for sale after each session.  Healthy snacks and refreshments are provided and guests are welcome to bring their own food and beverage.  For full day workshops, we take a half-hour lunch break.    We end each workshop with a photo session of our finished masterpieces and my dolls, of course, are available for photo ops!

We are located in Southern Oregon's Illinois River Valley in the small town of Cave Junction.  it's a great place to visit!  Just 45 minutes from the magnificent Coast Redwoods of Northern California with the Pacific Coast just beyond.              

We are rural so the closest hotels are about 30 miles away in Grants Pass and the closest airport is in Medford, Oregon, about 50 miles from here.    There are numerous campgrounds and RV Parks in the area.

Learn how to Felt Alive in this intensive 3 day journey into needle felted doll making!

Without the use of  wire armatures, you will learn to make fully jointed dolls that can stand on its own and move nearly like you and I.

In this workshop, you will learn many techniques for bringing wool to life.  We don't work from photos or a single model, rather, you'll be encouraged to let your imagination go as the wool tells you who and what it wants to become.    

Making expressive faces is a highlight of this course and you will have plenty of examples to look at as you work in the middle of my studio filled with needle felted dolls.   I'll share secrets that I use every day bringing my celebrity caricatures to life.  

From start to finish and every step in between - you'll even learn how to needle felt clothing and hair - and accessories if you please. 

If you have already learned through my doll-making DVDs, this workshop will expand on that as I share advanced techniques that will take your needle felting to the next level.  

This is what happens in a 3 Day Felt Alive Doll Making Workshop!
