Born Canadian artist and qualified designer, I love to share my felt-making knowledge with others in the heart of where the best wool is grown on green pastures, right here in New Zealand. Honing this ancient practice for over 5 years, I have been teaching felt making in the community and meeting many visitors. I am excited to share my knowledge, creativity and expertise with you so you can learn this authentic technique and take home a beautiful and timeless New Zealand souvenir.

wow what a great experience. Felting my own slippers with Lori was excellent fun. Lori is a grand host thoughtful fun perfectionist and passionate about felting. She is a lovely host couldnt do enough to make our day very memorable and I came home with a fabulous pair of an original design, by me, lovely felt slippers

Great experience with a patient and skilled teacher, resulting in the creation of a very special and personal item to take away as a memento. Lori was warm, friendly and approachable and made the process of learning to felt to be straight forward and achievable for all. Highly recommend this experience for anyone visiting Rotorua who is interested in crafting and design.

It was a fantastic and relaxed day spent with Lori. She is clearly an expert in her craft with a wealth of knowledge she was happy to impart to us. She was great with instructions and helping us achieve what we wanted to. We were amazed to come out of the experience with slippers that we absolutely love and have a story to tell about how they were hand made! A great experience and well worth the time.

This is a great craft to learn transferable to other items than slippers and Lori was great at teaching how to do this thank you so much.

This was a very enjoyable day. Lori spent the time sharing her expertise and enthusiasm, and also made a lovely light lunch of salad and snacks. The end result was a quality pair of slippers each, which we both love, with the added benefit of having learned something new. Thoroughly recommend, well worth the cost.

For your OWN little Woolies! Lori's studio is a perfect place to feel the creative spirit. It's a true artist's studio and the area she lives in is sublime. The day I spent there was a gorgeous blue sky day and all the windows were open for a view of the lake. The drive up takes you by the river and the forest is gorgeous. The lesson made the time fly by and we never stopped working or chatting. She has lots of materials and fine colored roving and silks to choose from. She offered lots of samples and ideas. In addition, Lori has a lovely personality and she is a comfortable & supportive teacher. I very much enjoyed the slippers that I made and will treasure them and the memory of my NZ craft-day for years. What a treat of a way to get to know New Zealand.
