All workshops and special programs will be held in the Engel Education Center or down on the Farm at Quiet Valley.
See below for information about upcoming activities available.

Felted Wool Feather TreeFelted Wool Feather Tree

Participants will create a tabletop tree reminiscent of the feather trees originally created by German immigrants who used dyed green or natural goose feathers.  The feathers were wrapped around stiff wire to become the branches of the trees.  These branches were then attached to a wooden rod for the trunk.  Participants will substitute felted wool for feathers.  There will be several color choices to be determined when students arrive.  The instructor will provide all of the supplies necessary to make the trees, but students must bring their own sharp scissors.  (The instructor recommends Tim Holtz Non-stick Serrated Snip Scissors – Ergonomic Large)
