Enjoy a monthly felting lesson with fiber artist and children’s book author-illustrator, Hillary Dow. Each session includes a core lesson, during which Hillary is working on an illustration for a future book! Lessons are photographed and/or recorded, cut together, and delivered to your inbox on the fourth Tuesday of every month.

Take your felting to a whole new level!

After recording each lesson, I compile videos that subscribers to my felting community have access to at no charge for a couple of days. Lessons are then available for individual sale and added to the content library of the Felting Master Class. Before lessons move on to paid access I sometimes add additional content capturing my steps to complete the development of the piece. From time to time (when life gets really hectic) a monthly lesson will consist of still images only. As a working mom and entrepreneur, I sometimes need to lighten my load!

Meet Your Instructor

Hi, my name is Hillary Dow. A few of my many hats include mother, author, artist, family chef, marketing consultant, marketing manager, felting artist in Maine, and oh so many more. I write children’s books illustrated with my wool creations. It is such a thrill and honor to inspire imagination in others. It is so much fun to be a part of helping someone develop their skills and CREATE artwork. Let’s get started!
