Learn to make sweet farm animal toys for creative play!

About this experience

These tiny wool felt animals can fit in a child’s hand, and are a perfect addition to story time or for prompting imaginative play. They are made from wool felt and batting and are easy to stitch up in an afternoon.


Pattern templates and materials provided.


This class is intended for adults, and could be appropriate for older kids (10+) who are accompanied by an adult (please register for two seats in that case)

Your Host

My name is Eloise Holland and I love finding colour in the natural world, using everything from Indigo to Lichen. I have been a natural dyer for over 15 years, teaching workshops and dyeing yarn for sale. I also make sewing kits for children and beginners.
I have recently moved to the Comox Valley where I spend my time mushroom hunting, birdwatching and regenerating my rambling overgrown garden.
Making has been a part of my life since childhood. I look on found objects as resources to use for creating. I dabble with all kinds of materials and have tried paper making, pottery, hand sewing, felting, and knitting.
