Needle Felted Pumpkin Patch
September 16 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm$55.00
In this class we will make a collection of 3 felt pumpkins. With your creativity and imagination, you will craft a unique felt “patch” of pumpkins for you to be proud of. Pumpkins will vary in size and be 4 to 6 inches wide. Participants will make at least 3 pumpkins, but you will have the opportunity to make as many as you are able to during the 2 hour workshop.
This project is geared for beginners (first-timers, or still learning basics) and is a great class to take with friends!
All supplies are included and the project will be done at the end of the class.
Participants will each take home a set of 3-5 pumpkins.
Tickets cost: $55/person + tax and EventBrite fees
Felting kits for other designs will be available at the end of the workshop for purchase.
**Attention: This project does require some patience and focus. For that reason, we don’t recommend children under 10 years old attending the workshop. Children older than 10 are welcome to attend with an adult who is also paying to take the class.
Hi! I am Monique Mullis, a retired Colorado State Park Ranger and co-owner of The Felted Dog with my sister. I am self-taught and started needle-felting over twelve years ago after looking high and low for a fiber art that didn’t include counting! It didn’t take me long to quickly learn what a fun, inexpensive, and addicting hobby it can be. I get most of my inspiration from nature and like to add my version of silly or whimsy to all the projects I make.
Over the years, I have learned various applications of needle felting, from appliqué on wool to 3-D wool creatures. I continue to develop my personal technique called EZ Peazy felting which uses little “cheats” to ensure a successful project the first time. I have designed several felting kits with these fiber “hacks” front and center.
Over the years, I have been so lucky to travel to many fiber festivals as a vendor and instructor. I have taught needle felting workshops at the Estes Park Wool Market, Sneffels Fiber Festival in Ridgway Colorado, the Texas Fleece and Fiber Festival, Bander Fiber Festival, the Eureka Springs Fiber Festival in Arkansas and even a virtual workshop in 2020 at the New York State Sheep and Wool Festival (Rhinebeck). I also teach monthly felting classes in our storefront and maker’s space, CoLLECTIVE, in Pueblo Colorado.
While I enjoy perfecting my own skills and making art pieces, I am particularly passionate about introducing people to needle felting and giving them the skills and tools, they need to make their own fiber creations.
