Nothing beats handmade when it comes to decorations. And you’re invited to felt a spook-tacular bat out of wool - just in time for Halloween. In this workshop Mia will teach you a handful of techniques that can be used in many other felting projects: from shape building to detailing and attaching various elements. No experience necessary. Adults and children ages 8 and up are welcome.

Cost is $75 and includes materials and use of a shop foam pad and felting needle. You’re welcome to bring a double-needle if you have one or purchase the tool at Portfiber. It would help to speed up your progress.

Mia is a fiber artist based in Portland. Through a variety of needle- and wet-felting techniques, she creates whimsical 3D wool sculptures that are oftentimes functional objects such as children’s toys, home decorations, holiday ornaments, conversation pieces, and jewelry. She draws her inspiration from nature and everyday life. Mia holds a BA degree in Education and a BS in Marketing Communications. She has been felting for over 12 years and has shared her knowledge and love for felting with children and adults at various venues in the Greater Portland area.
