PRETTY DARN FUN.
In case you missed the memo, we’ve been having some pretty darn fun felt flower workshops around here.
We started back in November with our holiday edition and everyone came and made these cute hand-stitched felt flower hoops.
Beth Costello from Heartgrooves Handmade is the designer behind all our class samples and she also teaches the class. In addition, I’m super thankful to have her working part-time at Plume.
The sunglasses are appropriate because to me she’s a ROCK STAR! You can read more about Beth in our Maker Monday Series here.
Last Thursday – Saturday we finished up our January Felt Flower Workshops and they were a huge success! If you’re thinking about taking one of these workshops, read on to get a better idea of what you’re in for. And don’t worry, you don’t have to be a crafting genius.
Starting with sheets of wool felt and our 100% wool felt balls, Beth takes you through a series of beginner level skills that when assembled all together help you make something pretty.
The January project was this adorable felt flower banner. Each student learned how to hand-cut three different felt flower patterns and one leaf pattern. These girls came ready to have fun and learn and left with some beautiful finished banners.
Each workshop is $45 per person which includes all materials, tools and supplies you need. BONUS: When you finish up we provide our signature made-from-scratch cupcakes and beverages.
If this sounds like loads of fun to you…you’re in luck. We just released our February Workshop dates and revealed our Workshop Project for the Month.
Is this not one of the most gorgeous little feminine wreaths you’ve ever seen? If these colors don’t work for you, you’ll be able to choose from three different color pallets for this class. Beth will teach you how to make the felt flowers & leaves and you’ll assemble everything on a 10″ gold macrame ring. These classes will fill up. Pre-payment is required to secure your spot. It’s easy to sign up here.
Thank you to everyone who has already taken one of these workshops. Some of you have even come back a time or two! We’ve loved having you and hope to see the rest of you soon.
