Studio Retreat


Are you cramped for space for your felting projects?


Is your "stash" limiting your creativity?


 Do your surroundings inspire you?

Do you need someone else to share your felting with?

Sounds like you need a treat... a felting re-treat!

We have the Space you need.
We have the "stash" you want.

We have the inspiration you wish for.

You can invite your friends to join you and share the costs, or you can have it all to yourself.


You can also bring a non-felting partner and choose from some of our optional extras to entertain them while you felt. This area is noted for fly fishing, river rafting, hiking, riding off road vehicles, etc.
