Felting Class at The Kirkland Arts Center

I am SO excited. This summer I'm leading a workshop on felting for kids at the Kirkland Arts Center (class details below).

The Kirkland Arts Center is an amazing place that brings together a community of experienced artists and budding artists of all ages to make and learn and surround themselves with art. The Center offers classes in ceramics, sculpture, printmaking, painting, drawing, glass fusing, and multimedia for all ages lead by instructors that are professional artists and educators from the area. I was so impressed by my daughters drawing and painting class I decided to pitch a textiles class to the school director. My last kids felting class was very successful and I knew it would fit in perfectly with the visual arts focus of the center. If all goes well perhaps they would be interested in expanding and adding needlework classes. If your family is in the area consider signing up for class, it's going to be a lot of fun.
