Create Your Own Felt Succulents Workshop

15 September @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Can’t keep a plant alive? Create two felt succulents to add a little warmth to your home, without having to worry about watering them!

Join Donna to create your own felt garden! Learn the basic stitches to create two potted plants, perfect for decor if you lack a green thumb. In this two hour workshop you’ll learn how to make an easy succulent using just creativity & hot glue and also how to hand stitch your own felt cactus. You’ll leave with the skills and inspiration to continue creating!

All tools needed will be provided for use during the workshop. Your choice of felt colours for both projects, and terracotta pots will be provided for your new plants!

Register via the eventbrite link below, $35 (includes taxes and fees).

No refunds on registration. Registration can be transferred to another person if you are unable to attend.
