Au programme

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.

You will be visiting the farm where I grew up! I have been felting wool for 4 years! My felting journey started with a hat gifted to me by my son made of Alpaca wool. Knowing that he made the hat with his own hands makes it that much more special each time I wear the hat. I have a love for all things wool even to the point that I learned how to shear sheep last winter! I am passionate about taking raw wool and making warm slippers, hats and mittens. I live on this farm in Gallatin Gateway Montana and raise milk goats, host events and fish on the Gallatin River. I hope to own a few sheep someday. In the meantime, I help friends with shearing and buy wool from local sheep grown in Montana and the USA.

If you are interested at all in knitting, sewing, crocheting, etc. this experience is a must. Even if you aren’t, Kim does a great job in teaching this craft and making it fun. Very nice setting and an awesome skill to learn! Who knew this would be how you make wool clothing! We had some smaller children and they had a blast playing with me in the snow outside while the other’s made slippers. She also made the kiddos some awesome slippers and me some mittens that I love. You can choose from many different colors or even mix some and try making some designs. My daughter made a flower on her slippers. Kim is a great person and is very caring and kind. A true and unique Montana experience, we will be telling everyone know. Thanks for making our day Kim!

I almost had to cancel this experience and am so glad I did it, because it was truly the highlight of my visit to Bozeman! Kim is an absolute gem, with a winning creative personality, fantastic storytelling and the perfect patience and perspective needed to be a great teacher. Her property is beautiful and I loved meeting the goats. She offered a lot of options for different types and colors of wool, and I fell in love with the raw Montana grey wool. I’d never had the chance to felt before and so enjoyed learning about the process in such a hands-on way and leaving with a product that I’ll use immediately in this winter weather. I wish I’d had time to come back and make slippers too! I’m inspired enough to try to get the supplies to continue this new skill at home and my hands feel like they’ve been to the spa, thanks to working with her homemade soap suds and the wool! Treat yourself to this unique and wonderful experience.
