Discover the Art of Felted Cactus Making!

Looking for a soothing activity or a new hobby? Want a houseplant without the hassle of actually keeping it alive? Felted cacti can survive in even the most inhospitable climates and look really cute on your desk! In this 90-minute class, you’ll learn the basics of how to create felted structures all while creating your very own needle-felted barrel cactus. Needle felting is an easy and often relaxing way to create 3D sculptures out of wool. No experience needed! This workshop is beginner-friendly, and your ticket includes all materials and step-by-step instructions.
