Cai Krikorian (M.Ed) is an experienced felter who has worked with preschool and school aged children in Whitehorse and Haines Junction. She started exploring wet felting through her work as leader of Chickadees Playschool, and has done simple flat pictures, felting rocks, felted bird nests with young children. Through AIS Cai has done felted globes, Yukon Birds, and local landscapes. She also specializes in needle felting on clothing.

In her own work Cai has created gloves, slippers, and larger wall hangings.

Cai enjoys connecting felting projects with curriculum outcomes. Send her an idea of what you are covering in the curriculum and most likely she can turn it into a felting project.
