Felted Flower Workshop
October 15 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
A fast-paced workshop presenting techniques for constructing and wet felting sculptural flowers.
Learn Kristy’s unique process for creating sculptural flowers and forms from nature at this felting workshop for beginners and experts alike. Together we’ll laminate wool and silk materials, combine needle and wet felting, and watch rich textures emerge with potential for many applications.
We will spend our time creating one flower together in class, and students will leave with materials for creating one more at home. An online tutorial with video instruction and access to instructor feedback will also be provided to all students (this never expires). The take-home activity provides a successful transition from the workshop to felting at home or on the go, whenever you might have the opportunity. All experience levels welcome!
Portland Textile Month only happens one month out of the year and we have more events than we can list. So the TextileX-change has been created to serve as a year-round companion site. Both community platforms provide a space to share ideas, histories, knowledge, commerce, and practices across cultures and generations.
TextileXchange serves as a primary hub to foster this inspired exchange throughout the Portland textile community and beyond. We hope you’ll join us!

Help Fund the Next Phase of Development of Portland Textile Month
In only 15 months, PTM has turned from an ambitious idea into an engaged community movement. This transformation highlights the power of our mission to foster collaboration cross-pollination, cultural dialogue, and exchange among the Portland textile community and beyond.
We've organized two festivals with over 120 events—representing the diversity of textile interests and practices. And we've galvanized makers, businesses, teachers, students, institutions, and organizations to gather around shared interests and knowledge-sharing.
PTM would not have been possible without the dedication of a core group of committed volunteers and the receptiveness of the textile community. We hope to continue building PTM and TextileXchange as sustainable resources that serve the textile community for years to come. And that's where you come in.
