My name is Cathy Disbrow and I’m a needle felt artist and teacher. I make my unique creations by stabbing wool with a barbed needle OR using water to connect wool fibers together. It’s a fun process which I thoroughly enjoy doing. I’ve been an artist all my life working in craft, digital art and hand drawn illustrations. With a love for animals and nature, felting was an obvious choice for an artistic medium. I love working with wool because it’s organic and natural, making each creation unique. I’m not only an artist but a needle felt teacher. I enjoy spreading the love of needle felting through workshops and DIY kits.
Etsy is the official Woolly Doodles online store. Shop online to buy my woolly figures, wool paintings, felted jewelry, and DIY kits. If you live in the Burlington-Canada area and can drive to my house to pick up your order, use coupon code LOCALPICKUP when checking out as it will remove the $15 shipping fee. You have to do this as Etsy does not offer a pick-up or delivery option.
I also have a Needle Felt Supply Shop using Square Store that contains DIY needle felt kits, my foam easel, and some wool and supplies. It’s in Canadian dollars and mainly for local pickup or delivery though I can ship across Canada and the USA.
Needle Felt Workshops & Classes
Cathy teaches needle felting classes and workshops in the GTHA area of Southern Ontario. Take a beginner’s course to learn the basics or take your needle felting to the next level and learn some intermediate techniques. Classes and workshops are usually taught in various locations in Oakville, Burlington, and Hamilton. Due to COVID-19, Cathy is going to start teaching online.
Book a Needle Felt Party
If you have 5 or more people and would like to host a private party with a needle felt project you get to choose, connect with me and I’ll be happy to work with you. Cost is based on amount of people, location, time needed for the class, and materials required.
