Felting Classes

Come to the Studio on Saturdays, to play.   

You will learn a felting technique, explore color, and enjoy a homemade lunch on a Saturday.


The Alpaca Fiber Studio has the largest offering of felting classes, for all different skill levels, in Northeast Ohio.  Start with one of the beginning classes and describe it in essay afterwards.  You are encouraged to make mistakes, and see what you can make intuitively.  What we really teach, is the opportunity for you to find your creative self and express it.  

Bring a friend, relative, or come make new friends!
