Wat je gaat doen

First, you will get to meet and pet a fiber animal. We have a cute Nigori goat kid.

Then you will immerse yourself in fluff. You will feel the fibers and discover the difference between sheep, alpaca, and angora fibers. You will also learn the background and history felting and sheering.

Next, you will select your favorite color of sheep fiber and use hand carders to brush out the fiber until it is silky smooth. Once you are satisfied with your fiber, we will give you a bar of sweet smelling hand soap. You will attach clumps of your fluff to the soap using a felt needle. Eventually you will wrap the entire bar of soap with fiber. We will then get our soap wet with hot water to create the felt. Felting soap was the traditional way to make soap last longer!

While our soap is drying we will create a doll! We will use pipe cleaners to make the shape and then cover the shape with more of our brushed out fibers, to create the doll's body. The doll will be poked with needles to sculpt features and clothing designs.

This experience will last about two hours. One hour will be learning about felting and soap making, one hour will be making a doll.

I have always dreamed of having a farm. My family taught English in China and built a cabin on Lummi Island, Washington before finally getting our dream farm in Vermont. I have raised angora bunnies for 11 years. I have been making needle felted fiber dolls and soap for 3 years. My rabbits and felted creations have won blue ribbons at fairs in 3 states.

This class is held on a rural farm. Easy to find and an opportunity to see darling animals. We started into the soap-making process and with my experience in working with wool before it was easy. MidiAnn is quite experienced and has had a incredible world traveled life and a great conversationalist. Then on to the doll-making. I made a blonde haired pigtailed “Texas Country Girl.” I was very comfortable with her instructions and style. I would recommend this class for children as well as adults. Thanks MidiAna! ❤️

Great experience. Very unique. Loved seeing all the animals and enjoyed being as creative as we wanted with our projects. Very friendly host, including her son. A homey setting made us feel very comfortable. Would do the experience again next time I'm in the area. Also would like to add how accommodating MidiAna is, due to loss cell signal I was 30 minutes late but it was not a problem for her at all. Thank you for the great time!

The Felted Soap course with MidiAna was informative and tons of fun. So glad I took the course. Additionally, I saw most of the farm animals and even held a bunny. Great time. I totally recommend this course.
