Needle-Felted Sheep with Tammy Jordan (Sat AM)
Do you love sheep and wish you could have some of your very own? Well, I can't promise a real sheep, but these Needle-Felted Sheep are the next best thing! In this three-hour fun and interactive workshop, you will create your very own festive and decorative needle-felted sheep ornaments. Choose from white, black, or brown local Montana wool from my own flock of sheep as well as locally sourced yarn to make your ornament. You will have time to complete one ornament in class and have the materials to complete an additional ornament at home, or in class if time permits.
Level: Beginner - No prior needle-felting experience is required.
Ages: 8+ Children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult who is taking the class.
Materials Fee: $15. Class material includes everything you will need to make one sheep ornament, which includes the fiber, felting needles, horseshoe nail legs, felting foam, and a detailed step-by-step resource guide. Additional materials and full kits will be available for purchase at the end of class.
Please Bring: A smile, and your creativity to design your very own masterpiece. If you have your own needles, you may bring them.

Tammy is a fourth-generation fiber artist who enjoys sharing her passion with everyone she meets. Her love of sheep, wool, writing, and inspiring others to learn led her on the path of running her own business, Goldieknots Montana, which specializes in Montana grown wool, locally processed yarn and spinning fiber, and Made in Montana handmade gift items, as well as educational programming in fiber arts. She has written for Ashford’s The Wheel magazine, participated in the Montana Art’s Council MAP program, and has taught at festivals throughout the United States including SAFF, Estes Park Wool Market, and Trailing of the Sheep. Her teaching style is fun, creative, and interactive, and when she’s not in her studio creating or on the road teaching, you can find her writing articles for her local newspaper and spending time with her dogs, sheep, horse, and other barnyard critters.
