Farm Felting Visit with Shiela Alexandrovich

Visit our farm, where we raise Icelandic sheep, llamas and use their wool to produce a piece of felt. Ideally a minimum of 3 hours is needed on site to tour and workshop. An extra adult as well as the teacher is needed for larger groups. It is possible to arrange for a camp over for high school grades, which would allow time to also cover needle felting on the piece created.

Shiela Alexandrovich

Shiela Alexandrovich has been working in the traditional arts for well over 20 years. The last ten have been focused on beadwork and basketry, experimenting with techniques and materials. She has been teaching both adults and young people in the contemporary use of traditional methods with the focus on learning the techniques rather than making a certain object. The land inspires her and it provides her with many of the materials she uses. She exhibits and teaches locally, as well as teaching numerous workshops throughout the Pacific Northwest. Recently Shiela has worked in England; learning and building random weave sculptures.
