The felting master class focuses primarily on the art of painting with wool. You will learn advanced felting techniques and artistic design, through trained instruction and collaboration with fellow felters. Hillary Dow, a formally trained illustrator, and author of several books will guide you through the process of constructing and creating wool paintings that combine 2D and 3D techniques, creating truly remarkable works of art. Members all receive one year of access to the felter’s master class portal, filled with recordings of lessons, step by step instructions, felting tip sheets, and exclusive member’s only content.

On the third Tuesday of every month, the felting master class meets virtually for a live two-hour Zoom lesson and gathering. We have an opportunity to show and tell recent projects, ask questions, share tips, and felt with one another. Can’t attend? The recordings are posted in the membership portal.
Annual 8 Week Felting Series
Once a year members are invited to attend a series of live zoom lessons that run over an eight-week period. Our goal is to provide a forum with group and individualized instruction and create an environment that fosters meaningful and lasting connections. Someday, Hillary will offer an in-person felting retreat in Maine every year, but she’s not quite there…yet. For now, the zoom series works really well. Here’s what our members are saying:
“It is so relaxing and enjoyable, I look forward to it every week.” Robin K. – joined 2021
At this time, enrollment in class does not include felting supplies, since some members may have a treasure trove of supplies and wool already close at hand. However, if that is not the case, we do offer advanced felting kits that are well suited for this membership. Additionally, puff pouches of our signature colors make a great addition to your wool palette.
