In celebration of spring, we will be felting little planet earths as well as some of her fabulous creatures. Using all natural, sustainable, renewable, and biodegradable wool, you learn wet and dry felting. You will create earth balls to hang as ornaments or mobiles, use as dryer balls, cat and dog toys, or give as gifts. We will be using cookie cutter shapes for the creation of creatures great and small, such as elephants, ducks, cows, coyotes, dolphins, and, of course, sheep. All supplies are included. At the end of a fun and engaging class, take home your creations to share and honor our shared home, EARTH.

Making Itty Bitty Churro Sheep
with Nadina Barnes

Fun for Free, No Registration Required, Appropriate for age 7+
Navajo-Churro sheep are the local heritage sheep of New Mexico. Introduced to this area by Spanish settlers in the 1600s, they are now considered a rare breed. These sheep with their long staple of protective top coat and soft undercoat are well suited to extremes of climate. Join us in celebrating this heritage breed by making these little bitty pipe cleaner and wool churro sheep. They’re easy to make and fun for all ages. This is a free offering so drop by and play.
