Meet the Instructor:
Marie Spaulding is the CEO and founder of Living Felt – Felting Supplies. Sometime around the turn of the century, she discovered the art and craft of feltmaking and fell madly in love.
“I began dabbling in arts and crafts in my early 20’s, but when I first saw a needle felted sculpture, I knew I had to give it a go. Since that first project, I was enthralled with the versatility of the medium and its endless possibilities. I jumped quickly into wet felting and nuno felting, and enjoyed exploring processes and projects.”
Marie began to teach felting in her local area and later authored instructions of a needle felting project. From that day forward, Living Felt morphed from being her studio name to an idea … to share the art of feltmaking, and teach the world to felt.
Marie spends almost every waking moment working on Living Felt and now its online school, FeltingTutorials.com, and felting … of course 🙂 She is committed to empowering others to express their creative voice through the art of making felt … be it with water or a needle or both!
