With Erika Cleveland
- Saturday, July 9, 1:00 - 5:00 PM
Let's have summer fun! Join us to create felted 3-D fairy villiages and bring healing and playful energy into your life.
Felting is a fun process using intertwining wool fibers that are tangled and compacted by repeatedly pressing a needle through the fibers, sculpting magical three-dimensional shapes. You will be guided by journaling and meditation to create your own fairy world.
You don’t have to know how to felt, it’s easy to learn!

About Erika Cleveland
Artist, writer, and healer, Erika Cleveland was trained as an art therapist at NYU. After working clinically for many years with children and adults in settings such as the International Center for the Disabled in NYC and Boston Children’s Hospital, she studied at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Her current focus is on the ways in which changes, big and small, cataclysmic and celebratory, force us to grow and reinvent ourselves. In addition to offering healing doll workshops, she makes commissioned healing dolls. Most recently she was juried into the Torpedo Factory in Alexandria, VA where she makes and shows her dolls. When not at the Torpedo Factory, Erika can be found working in her tiny DC home studio. Or she might be hanging out with her husband, two kids (a teen and an almost-teen,) and her 100-pound bulldog who thinks he’s a lap dog.
