Needle Felting Fun: working with wool roving you'll create your fun critter. Inspired by something from your imagination or something "normal" but what would happen if instead of being a person it was a lizard doing something very "un-lizard" like.


SAM RUSSELL moved to Mendocino's Redwood Coast from metropolitan Southern California, gaining two extra hours every day not spent in traffic. That time gave her a chance to explore her lifelong love of textiles. Her father always challenged her thinking by asking, “What more could you do with that idea? How far can you take that?" Her father’s mantra still resonates with her creative process. After moving to Mendocino she added weaving, dyeing and surface design to her textile skills. When she discovered needle felting, she immediately knew that’s where she belonged.

No refunds will be made after that date for any reason due to our contractual obligations and material acquisitions. If the Art Center is compelled to cancel a class you will receive a full tuition refund. Memberships are non-refundable as they are considered a donation to the Art Center.
