All classes on FeltingTutorials.com come with a complete supply list that will outline the wool and fiber you need for your felting class, and will list other tools that you might need.
Supply lists are accessible after enrolling in the course. The supply list will include links to supplies or the general supply category of the Living Felt – Felting Supplies shopping cart. Some classes also have a kit or bundle available for purchase, also from Living Felt.
Achievements are fun felting badges you can earn for completing a course or hitting other milestones within a learning track.
Achievements are a component of all paid classes, but may not be a component in free classes.
You will find “mark complete” buttons throughout your lessons, make sure to click those as you complete each section.
This includes informational sections/lessons such as downloads for supply lists and patterns.
Achievements are awarded automatically and will appear in your dashboard.
Achievements are earned through self tracking of course completion, whereas certificates are awarded after completion is verified by school staff.
Once you enroll in a class, it is yours to access. Regular courses are available immediately upon enrollment, that means no waiting 🙂 Regular courses also do not have an end date, so as long as you maintain your membership, you can access courses you have purchased. This is especially helpful as you can revisit any section over and over. PLUS, you can interact with others in the class chat when they join the course 🙂
Notes are a utility available to all students. Under the DASHBOARD, you will see a link for “My Notes”. In this area you can access notes you have taken in any of the courses you are enrolled in. Some suggestions for “notes” are:
Bookmark a Lesson: Copy quick links for sections of a class you want to jump back to and re-watch or watch at a later time.
Supply Notes: Jot down notes about supplies or materials you want to get, you can even paste urls for the specific products you want to buy.
Color and Design Ideas: Feeling inspired? Scratch down your concept and color ideas right on the course page so you can take action on that inspiration when you are ready to gather your supplies.
Questions & Comments: Have a “?” Use notes to quickly write down your question. If your question is about a particular section of a lesson, make note of the time stamp on the video so you can include that when you post a question to the Class Chat (discussion page)
For more detailed info on My Notes, make sure you are Logged In to see screen shots below.
Find the note pad button within a LESSON
When you click on the note title, this it what you see.
(If you prefer to go back to the lesson where you took the note, click on the Location: subtitle instead of the title)

For each fee based class you enroll in, you will find CLASS CHAT section under the Getting Started & Resources Section. Use this area to post comments, compliments and questions about the class. Responses may come from other students, the course instructor or Felting Tutorials staff. CLASS CHAT is for commentary particular to that class and its subject matter only. *Please note, not all instructors are U.S. based, and providing ongoing support is not a requirement of the instructor … but there are others who can help out, so go ahead and post any questions in the class chat. 🙂

Have you completed your class? That is awesome!! Certificates of Completion can be awarded when you have finished a class and “made the thing”.
Whereas a “badge” is a self “yay, I took in the material! :)”, a Certificate is a bonafide, verified achievement of completion.
To get a Certificate of Completion for a course, do the following:
1) Post a picture of your completed project in the Class Chat
*It does not have to be an exact replica of what the instructor made, but it does need to be a project made from this course instruction.
2) Use the Contact Us Form and select Certificate Request from the menu
3) In that message, confirm your full name, and confirm that you have posted a picture of your finished item in the class chat.
We will award your certificate within 3-5 days.
Certificates will appear on your dashboard and can be downloaded from there.
Certificates are FUN and may be useful for those seeking CE Credits. If you are a teacher and need an additional letter of verification for CE credits, please include any pertinent information in the form when you request your certificate so we can make sure you get the documents you need 🙂
All of our video courses are available in a streaming format, which means you do not have to download large video files. To take your course and view the lessons online, simply go to your course page on a computer, tablet or phone that is connected to the internet.
*Some classes will have resource materials that you may wish to download. These may include SUPPLY LISTS, PATTERNS and GUIDES from the teacher.
If you do not have a printer, consider sending the item to a local Fedex/Kinkos or copy shop to print for you.
