Learn to make a delightful little stitched scene with Sunny Carvalho. Using soft, pretty wool felt and embroidery stitches, this class will be a fun, relaxed day of painting and hand-sewing. We will also discuss my method of over-dyeing wool felt. You could use the scenes you make as patches or frame them (or anything else you'd like to do with them!).

  • $10 includes:
  • 2 handmade blank ceramic pieces for you to paint faces onto
  • Several pieces of hand-dyed wool felt
  • Wire to make tiny arms and legs
  • A few pieces of handspun silk yarn to use as hair
  • I will have additional small packages of my dyed felt and my ceramic pieces available for purchase
