Fall in love with crafting with SPES Public Environmental Education Coordinator and felting hobbyist, Anna Bondartchouk. The art of needle felting is simple: take some wool, a needle, and a bit of patience and creativity to make your very own unique creation. This month, we are celebrating Vancouver Bird Celebration by creating 2D wool paintings of the graceful resident bald eagles! Participants must register by May 15 to reserve a felting kit (all supplies included with your ticket purchase). Felting needles are sharp, recommended for ages 12+.
We are proud to include this event in the Vancouver Bird Celebration. Check out other programs happening during the Vancouver Bird Celebration from May 13 to May 31 to get excited about birds!

She tried out felting in 2021 and was immediately hooked on the idea of making her own toys and creations with such a simple method. Anna enjoys sharing this fun craft with her friends and family. You can follow her felting fun on Instagram (@bluepuppyfelting).
