Birdie on a Wire Tree (class)

On Saturday, November 1st, I will be teaching a class at Five Crows in Natick, MA.  During this 3-hour class, we will be making felted wool birdies on wire trees.  And you’ll have the option to make two items (examples shown below).


One of the items is a canvas (this piece was shown in a previous blog post).





The other option is a tree in a spool.



This will be my first class teaching adults.  When Brook was little (elementary and middle school years), I used to teach an after school art class to kids her age, but it’s been many years since.

It’s taken me a while to branch out again (these last several years I’ve mostly been creating alone in my home art studio).  Although I very much enjoy this alone time, there’s a part of me that would like to try the group atmosphere of creating together.  If you like this idea as well and have the afternoon of November 1st open, just hop on over and sign up for my class.

I have a feeling that branching out could be fun.

    These creations are absolutely precious!!!!! I wish I lived closer…I would most certainly be there!! What a amazing experience it will be. 🙂

    I know you’ll do fabulously, for everything you do comes from your heart and beautiful, bright spirit!

    I’m so inspired to make something akin to this myself. I adore birdies…and trees and shimmers…
    Much love,

  2. You’ll be awesome, I’m sure, and I’d love to attend if I didn’t live sooo far away. As the proud owner of that little canvas (thank you, thank you!) I can say that it makes me happy every day. I’ve no doubt that the participants will feel the same about their creations from your class. Have fun!

    oh how fun. Wishes and fishes. Oh well, I’m sure your students will enjoy themselves immensely. How could they not, making something so precious, and having you for a teacher. It’s fun having like minded people around you to share your passion. Have fun.
    Been making felted pumpkins lately.

    I wish you all lived nearby too…it would be such a pleasure meeting you in person. And to be able to create together would be such a treat for me.

    Becky enjoy every moment of teaching others… you are a very inspirational person, intentional or not. I always leave your blog feeling a little more peaceful and happy, and those that are able to attend your class are very lucky indeed!
