NEW WORKSHOP! Tuesday August 27th - Buckthorn Bumble!


Needlefelting + Natural Dye, all-in-one workshop!

We’ll be needlefelting a sweet little bee out of local sheep wool, naturally dyed with buckthorn (an invasive species). We’ll go over how to identify buckthorn, and two of the different ways of dying with the bark (with very different results!). Then straight into a beginner needlefelting class — where you’ll craft your very own little buckthorn bumblebee. No needlefelting experience is necessary.

You’ll take home:

  • needlefelting supplies (sponge + needles)

  • your bee!

  • a sample of buckthorn bark so you can experiment on your own

Workshop will be held at Artisan Collective Market, 279 Front Street, Belleville.

Tuesday August 27th 2019, 6PM-8PM.

We recommend younger participants be ~12 years old+. Email us ( if you would like to confer. See you there!
