Trunk show is open to extra guests if you live close and just want to come for the trunk show you are welcome. Friday Evening 6PM. RSVP to assure there are no changes.
Friday, Day 1: Guests will arrive via car or airline. (You will need to arrange your own travel). We can arrange to pick you up if you fly into Pullman, WA airport or you can rent a car. We will relax and unwind and have snacks. Once everyone has arrived and settled in we will begin an informal talk on felting. We will start with a simple felting project. We will have some of our creations for inspiration and for sale. (see more on this website)
We will have the Trunk Show this evening starting about 6PM with refreshments and prizes.
Saturday, Day 2: We will have a full day of felting dispersed with walks, talks and possibly a trip to a local coffee/sandwich shop (not included in price but transportation provided). Oh and plenty of relaxing in between. We will make at least one large wet felted project to your preference, ie a bag, scarf or hat. I will provide wool for 1 project each lesson and if you want to make more I will have extra supplies that you can purchase.
Sunday, Day 3: Sunday I will show you how to needle felt as a decoration on a flat surface. You may want to bring a sweater or jacket to decorate. Or you can make a wall hanging. We will visit the local Coulter Creek winery for tasting or a meal. ( This is not included in the 4 day price but transportation will be provided.)
Monday, Day 4: We will finish up any projects that need finished or start a new one time permitting. We should get at least 4 done in the 4 day period. We can do jewelry, soap, flowers.
