FUN WITH FIBER: BEGINNING NEEDLE FELTING
Remove the mystery behind those finely crafted wool forms and learn the amazing art of needle felting. We'll start with a brief history of how in the world this craft developed, learn about the tools and techniques then get to work transforming fuzzy wool balls into beautiful fall leaf forms. We'll explore ways to turn your leaves into coasters, a table runner, place mats or for use in decorating a fall wreath. This is a beginners class, no experience with felting necessary. You'll finish the day with a working knowledge of how to make forms and hopefully an appetite for more.
All materials for your project will be provided and additional materials will be available so you can continue on your needle felting journey!

Forge like a real blacksmith!
Come once to try it out and make a small project, or keep coming back to learn more and level up your skills!
Students will learn how to make individual items like basic hooks, leaves, bottle openers, keychains, etc. These are fun classes, and can be a great introduction to forging and blacksmithing.
Our fundamental blacksmithing classes follow a national curriculum and progress through three different levels, ranging from the very basics of blacksmithing to advanced techniques. The focus of these classes is on mastering the fundamentals of blacksmithing. Students will make projects in these classes, but the emphasis is on skill development and technique, as well as the other educational aspects of blacksmithing.
Our skill based blacksmithing classes follow a nationally recognized curriculum. It is by far the best linear and progressive path for beginner and advanced blacksmiths to develop the skills of an effective blacksmith.
There are three different levels in the curriculum. Level 1 typically takes about 40-50 hours to complete. When Level 1 is complete, the student will have all of the basic skills of forging. From there, most students decide if they want to continue to more advanced skills through the Level 2 and Level 3 course, or jump in to our Journeyman curriculum.
Time: 10am - 12pm
This class is designed for children and adults. Younger students are usually 9-12, but exceptions can be made for students younger than that.
