Wool felting slippers or mittens
Make your own slippers or mittens from raw wool! Have you always wondered how wool is made into a wearable, felted clothing or accessory? This class will show you the transformation of fluffy wool to cozy slippers/mittens! This experience will walk you through how to make your own slippers or mittens from wool. We will use the "wet felting" technique to shape and size your mittens or slippers. You will make your own warm and cozy mittens or slippers or make a pair to give as a gift! We will start in a rustic Art Studio cabin (with masks and social distancing) and determine your slipper or mitten size and then you can chose the color of wool. I will show you the basic steps prior to starting and then work with you as you layer the fluffy wool into the shape of the pattern. As the class progresses we will add warm, soapy water and start the felting process! The next step is called "fulling" on an antique wash board. The final step is finishing your mittens or slippers by fitting them to your hands or feet while they are still damp. You will take them home slightly wet, but they should dry by morning. PLEASE request a time and I will work you into my schedule! Great for team building and corporate events!

Discover Pickleball in Boise as a Local
I am interested in sharing what I love about pickleball, the fastest growing sport in the U.S. It's very popular in Boise and there is a strong interest especially for new players. Through my past experience in teaching over 3 years, I have witnessed the enjoyment, mental and physical health benefits the game offers. Pickleball was called the perfect pandemic sport because of the social connections it created during Covid. This, along with vitamin D, being outdoors, group fitness, and naturally social distanced, the sport has changed many lives. People of all ages and abilities play immediately as it offers a short learning curve. It's also inexpensive and a perfect way to meet other like minded people, especially while traveling. I have enjoyed playing this sport in other countries as well during my travels and have met so many nice people.
