Felted bird class

Yesterday I took my first wet and needle felting class with my dear friend and fellow artist, Jennifer Fields. Check out the beautiful and whimsical work of Jennifer Field’s. Her felted birds are some of my favorite so I was naturally excited to be learning from the best. She is one of my favorite people and I can’t wait to visit her in Maine this summer and learn more about glass and felt making.

I hope to teach wet felting to my second graders this year.
