Needle Felt Classes & Workshops

COVID-19 (coronavirus) and my workshops – update April 14, 2020

I want to share an update on my response to the global concerns surrounding COVID-19 (coronavirus). The health, safety and well-being of my students is my top priority.

On April 14, the Ontario Government has ordered the closure of all non-essential workplaces in Ontario for a minimum of 28 days starting on April 14, 2020. This means all workshops scheduled for Spring 2020 are officially postponed or canceled. I’m currently not planning any in-person workshops until September 2020, when hopefully we can all be together again.

Thank you, Cathy

Online Workshops

Some of you have asked me if I plan to offer workshops online. Currently, I’m not set up for this and the camera I want to buy is on back-order until July. I have a 4-year-old smartphone, but luckily a laptop I bought in 2019. The camera is not ideal as Dell put it in a weird place, but I’m looking into ways I may be able to offer something in the future. Meanwhile, I plan to have some Facebook Live sessions for Needle Felting Q&A. Just ironing out those details.
Follow me on Facebook to keep in the loop.

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 currently held in various locations in Oakville, Burlington, and Hamilton. Each listing will say where the event is being held and a link for more information where you can sign up.

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. Don’t hesitate to ask me!

Private Lessons

Private lessons are very beneficial as you can get the one-on-one attention that you need, and every lesson is catered to your specific issue and project. If your problem requires more time and attention than 5 minutes, please book a private session with me.

I’m looking into offering online workshops during the COVID-19 isolation but not sure how soon I will be able to get the proper equipment for this. If I do, they will be posted on this page and on Facebook.

Physical workshops are being planned for Fall 2020. Check back in the summer to see what’s being offered.

If you have a class idea or something specific you want to needle felt, please contact me. I’m always looking for new ideas.
