Hi friends, it’s been awhile since I posted. Life continues to go one, one day at a time, and I have begun to come out of my grief hibernation, a little more each day. I’ve connected with an amazing business owner, Alicia Vanwalleghem, of Leaping Llamas Artisan Shop in downtown Topeka, and have scheduled classes through the end of the year:
I am looking forward to our felting projects for the year, and hope that you will stop by the shop, sign up for one, or more, felting classes and come join the fun. Here’s the schedule of classes:

Thursday, June 1, 2017-Geode Earrings-6pm to 8pm

Watch for updates with class samples and for pictures after the classes! We have great fun Stabbing Things Into Existence (c) with needle felting, and Thwacking Things Into Existence (c) with wet felting. Most classes are beginner friendly, especially the Thursday evening classes. The classes on Saturdays over the summer build upon the previous class, and do require more attention to detail, as well as more ability to work with your upper body. Wet felting is quite the workout!
Check in with Alicia at the shop for more details and to RSVP your space with prepayment. All supplies are included for these classes! For the wet felting classes, you’ll want to bring an old towel to transport your creation home. I hope to see you in class!
